This is something I am working on at present.. I find it hard to ‘stop painting’ sometimes..it’s like my conscience is whispering to stop but I can’t. Physically, I feel compelled to work some of my paintings up and up until they are almost smothered.. that is where I ‘go’ when I surround myself with my subject..
One of my paintings, ‘I Am Consumed’ selected for Signal Open 2017, 5th annual group exhibition. The show runs from August 14th to August 27th, with opening reception on Friday 14th at 7pm, Signal Arts Centre, Bray, Co. Wicklow.
Taken on my phone for now, this painting is finished as of right now. After talking to a visitor to my studio today about my work, on how it comes together and where it comes from, made me think a lot more about my art and the direction it’s going. This piece I thought was finished a week ago, until this afternoon. But now it is there I think. I am ecstatic. Come see it at my exhibition in February, opening March 3rd, Signal Arts Centre, Bray 🙂
