What Survives

A large scale work in progress.. It’s a question of what survives and what must give in.

A Way to Equilibrium

Finding balance in every way is relevant to how we live and exist.

Sometimes or Always?

Standing back after an intense session of painting and trying to work out where it’s going I can sometimes see parts of the chaos in my mind. Usually on a day where I finally tackle my fears, the what, why, when, how, but, all shower down in a deafening noise. Then I stop and I can begin to make sense of something.. sometimes.

This work in progress is perhaps another of those..

Oil on Paper

New from the studio, oil and beeswax on stretched paper. The surface of the paper is primed with PVA and layers of gesso. I began with the drawing in charcoal and pencil with thin layers of paint ade transparent to reveal the under drawing detail. I also used oils mixed with cold wax to push and drag over the surface.

Inspired by the surroundings of large boulders and rocks on a walk near Scar mountain a few weeks back.
