Here are some photos so you can get a taste of the exhibition.
I gave a little talk explaining the process. How, as Blue and I worked together over the four years it allowed me to look further than the likeness.
|I made large gestural paintings to explore expression, texture, intention, emotion.
|Some series were about the space and composition,
|with some I went with the flow, what happens against black backgrounds, aginst ochre, blue... and some were purely decorative, to give pleasure and please the eye.
I am so pleased to have looked at this work again. I intend to revisit the things I found with these figure studies in my interior paintings, to play with the surface of the painting, to pull more energy and expression from the surface, to intensify the contrasts of dark and light. to merge the figurs with the backgrounds... stir things up again. mmmm.
