‘Torso’ Re-Visited 2019-2020

Re-working ‘Torso’ which began last year in early 2019, this is one of 3 paintings I have re-visited in the past few months. In this first video below I am sharing some of my thoughts on what I was up to before finishing the painting a couple of days ago.

The figure has emerged again which can be said for most of my recent work. I think it comes from the under drawing where I recall the curvatures that I see in the landscape a lot of the time. I don’t want to pin it down as being what the work is though because there are many things I think of when drawing. I try to be as non-objective and as free and expressive as I can at the drawing stages at the beginning of the work.
