About this Event
OPEN 4 - 8pm from 2nd - 5th Feb 2022
LIVE Painting 4 x 4 m that will be divided up on completion...
Supported by a selection of works captured as I found them.
Sometimes as an Artist I destroy canvases, simply as they don't 'work out', this happening with a large painting I did recently...
The image made it to a skip, broken, destroyed and deemed worthless for a short while. Then I realised something, I was looking at it as a failure due to the scale, there were many smaller areas , 'scraps' that fascinated me, and now even more so.
These smaller series of works gave me new process, they have unity, they were saved and given greater meaning.
I want the viewer to grasp the sensation of painting as you experience an in studio atmosphere. It’s the torment caused through a working image that makes painting rewarding, as the paint is steered around the surface in hope to be ‘cured’.
This show embodies my process.
Pre-Show you can enjoy the LEVEN hotel lobby bar & lounge, show your ticket for two-for- one drinks, this is an open space for all so come as you like, pass through the Art space as you like.
