Description

                         Painting: Oil and Ink on Canvas.

Inviting the viewer into a less familiar environment, the simple compositions allow the paint to speak. The work explores a diverse approach to oil painting: borrowing traditions and exploring processes in order to investigate different ways of controlling and engaging with the viewer. The tension between the silent, geometric structures and the rhythm of nature create a disquieting unease that can allude to the Uncanny. This body of work is a direct development from the Borderline Project, exploring the relationships between architecture, design and the tradition of oil painting

Subjugate Painting
Painting: Oil on Canvas. Hands are significant in dislocating the connection an audience would normally encounter with a traditional portrait.
The painting seeks to allow an audience to create their own narrative to the male and female subjects. What is happening? Why cover the eyes and mouth? What are their functions? I would hope the questions lead to other questions to create a scene or moment for the viewer.
This painting used Old Holland and Michael Harding professional oil paints. The ground is 10oz acrylic primed canvas with responsibly sourced 4.4cm deep stretcher bars.
