paintings

 

I have been painting on and off for years and mostly use acrylic paints which I often pair with other mixed media elements such as powder pigments, coloured inks and gummed tape..I paint portraits and landscapes in which I generally try to introduce some element of controlled accident which I then have to react to and attempt to work with, but often when I start a painting I have no definite preconception of where the painting will take me.

Floating City

Acrylics & mixed media on canvas, 81 x 60 cm, 2012. Inspired by German painter, Charline von Heyl, I followed her general approach by bypassing any prior planning stages plunge into the painting stage and responding directly to what was happening on canvas. I started off with strong vertical blue stripes which I then partly overpainted. Somehow a cityscape seemed to emerge from the canvas. Though using a similar process, my outcome is totally different from Von Heyl's work.
