Final Piece

This is my final piece, it is a diptych. I am going to hang them, with an exaggerated gap in the middle. The latter paintings are an exploration of composition, i shall start to decided what the fuck i am doing on them. only four weeks left.

A new piece in which i am currently making. Having my qwork take on a minimalist approach, i wanted to explore this more. I have used a lighter shade of pink within the square, which will forma subtel background, the blue pieces are tape. argh i cant explain!

Little Annoyance

Well, this is the bitch of them all. I cant get enough of painting it, however, there is something missing and i can't put my finger on it. A colour? a mark?

I have no idea, but i am going to layering colours, to get away from the Dark Grey, car-like painted background. It has come along way, but is like a crying baby.

This is how a left it last night, after a tutorial wuth Bob Fearns, i asked which was my least successful piece, he pointed out this one, in which i agreed. I felt it was too busy, certain marks didnt hold themselves stongly enough in comparision to the larger areas of colour.

This was how i left it after today. Slight alterations. but still a paint in the arse!

God Loves A Murderer Because There is So Much Sin Too Forgive

The above piece is titled 'God Loves A Murderer Because There is So Much Sin Too Forgive'...I think so anyway, im fond of this title, and think it should be used for another piece.

I did this in 5 minutes, litterally, just messing around with a technique of applying paint. I also did it upside down, not realising what the images was untill i turned it 360 degrees. The image is apparent.. MY SUBCOINIOUS HAS ARRIVED!

Penis Envy - Unfinished

So.. finially a artist statement has popped out, never think it would happen, now it has to be a website. fuck.

My practice derives from the subconscious but the end product is directed through intuition that takes in the vastness of the piece and balances out the composition aesthetically. I believe in allowing the viewer to interpret actual subjective meaning that the piece holds, but aim to guide them, through the use of colour, texture and composition into, foremost, a feeling/emotional response from which subjective interpretation takes place.
Whilst aesthetical value provides the basis of my expression, the work also makes reference to influences ranging from mythology, taboo sexual subjects and to the anxieties of modern life. Although painting is the primary mode of expression, the exploration of these subjects takes place across a range of different media including printing and drawing. By working in this manner the work draws upon careful research and interpretation of materials, situations and personal/subjective analysis, and develops into a more considered, responsive and immediate body of work.
