  work in progress.IMG_6367This work measures 2.20M  x 1.4M (7′ 2″ x 4′ 6″) approx. 

Although the painting is blocked in, there is still a lot of mark-making to be done before it is finished.   Ultimately a batten will be fixed to the top of the work which will be hung from the ceiling.  This painting is the backdrop for three other “floating” paintings. Together these form an installation which allows viewers to literally walk through the painting.

About this Project

For many years I have been interested in referencing the marks left behind as a result of normal everyday activity.  This often involves drawing around or alongside the unintentional marks, stains, creases or wear and tear created in the course of normal activity.  Highlighting them by drawing lines around or alongside them as shown below.

This project took place over a three month period in which all the marks and detritus left behind after the evening meals were ‘marked in’. These marks slowly built up over time creating this rather  interesting design.

The project was also documented photographically from which drawings and collages were also created. See more images from this project.
