WORK IN PROGRESS

at
Hilltop Art House

Seating in our exhibition space at Hilltop Art House. I am working on them simultaneously to ensure they balance each other. It’s a big project!

This is the moment I have been waiting for where I can not only see how the two settees are working together but how the entire space works. Some minor tweaking has taken place but surprisingly very little. This work takes a lot of concentration and decision making with every shape, line and mark being considered. Needless to say I was in my element.

FLOATING PAINTING

  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.

WORK IN PROGRESS

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.
