Oil on canvas

h: 61 w: 100 d: 2 (cms).

This painting is from of a series of works entitled  'under cover'.

The initial source material for this particular work was a young French girl called Elsa who seemed to embody the universal qualities of shyness alongside great strength, stubbornness and determination.

Following some digital manipulation of the initial photographic image to determine the composition, colour etc. it was then scaled up on canvas and executed in transparent colour oil glazes, a technique I have been developing for the last 6-7 years..

Elsa

Oil on canvas

h: 50 w: 55 d: 2 (cms).

This painting is derived from a close up image I took of a young French girl, Elsa.

My main area of interest has always been the human face and form, encompassing universal recognition of emotion and sensuality seen up close with highly detailed observation. Larger than life images dealing with fragments of life seen at close range - the portrayal of the elusive touch or feeling; the detail and minutiae of life; introspection - fleeting ‘moments’ translated into paintings. I hoped to convey a calm, sensual quality with this work, qualities which Elsa herself  portrayed but which are also universal female qualities.

The painting is executed in many layers of transparent colour oil glazes.

Falling

Oil on canvas

h: 71 w: 61 d: 2 (cms).

'Falling' is a painting derived from a series of photographs taken of a friend of mine called Laura. It is a fragment of life expressing a fleeting moment (to be interpreted by the viewer). The painting is executed in many layers of transparent oil colour glazes on canvas.

I believe  that there is an innate response to the mimetic and the re- presentation of our own image, it is something we are fascinated by and conditioned to respond to. Painting takes this into another realm with the artist controlling each element of the re-presentation.
