Forgetting Painting…

There has been a great deal of screen time lately spent with words rather than images, so some old sanded down works became the victims of too much time away from the studio...started in the usual way with marks and some more marks, well, lots more marks, really...changed the scale of the marks...bigger lines, different demands of the mark...different painting now...

Year of the Bird @ MRAG – progress

Some preliminary sketches for my large paper work for Year of the Bird."...Our relationship with the bird is complex. We have a long cultural history of using birds decoratively, symbolically, narratively, allegorically and consuming them literally and metaphorically through advertising, art, commerce and fashion. My work for Year of the Bird borrows from mythological, literary and popular culture representations of birds and re-imagines them in abstracted imaginary ‘field studies’. These large scale painted drawings are also personal interpretations of the museological and presentational aspects of natural history traditions, incorporating abstract note-taking, anatomy and typography. References to these borrowed traditions are…
