Gloss paint on professionally made deep frame canvas
H100 x W50cm (45mm deep)
Controlled composition that deals with a diagonal aspect and layers of rich gloss paint, plastic skins of colour and produced by a heavier application of paint that sits over a lightweight background.
This painting belongs to a body of work that focuses on abstract paintings that explore processes which build up the painting through application of paint in different manners.
The colours and textures of this work are a key part of the paintings themselves. The paint envelopes around the canvas, paint application is sometimes controlled and sometimes has a sense of freedom, a conflict and tension within the painting. In this painting itself, there is a combination of controlled application with a planned approach to applying the paint, however the fluid and freeform overlay is what creates the contrast within it.
