Art Description

Painting: Oil, Charcoal, Acrylic on Canvas.

Casting out

My working practice acts as a visual diary of my thoughts and feelings often based on the past, but sometimes on something seen, music heard, places visited and everyday experience.
Casting out, is inspired by a visit to Norway's beautiful wild open spaces in contrast with my cramped childhood experience living with a mother who was an extreme hoarder, an expression of freedom from life’s clutter.

When painting, I am completely immersed in the process. I build a reverberating relationship with the canvas, a push and pull of chance and control. As much is taken away from the painting as is added, with constant building and washing of the canvas, aiming to invoke an atmosphere drawn from the process, the initial emotional trigger and the colour palette employed. I use palette knife, cloth, brush and sponge to add, remove, scratch, blur and work the paint, utilizing large amounts of water poured down the canvas, making it necessary to paint in wellingtons…..
