Artwork description:

Alois, is an exploration of Alzheimer’s, the frustration for the sufferer, and the torment of the family.
‘Alois’ was there first name of the name who discovered the disease.
The painting, 30x30cm was painted in oils, on canvas, with layers of varnish.
Alois was exhibited as part of the solo exhibition “aboutFace”, at the Python Gallery in Middlesbrough.
The exhibition was a nostalgic look at memories of work, thoughts and life events.
An exploration of memory, and that part between real memories and false remembering - was it the photo I remembered, or do I really remember the events?
Significant life events are explored through painting, past traumas and experiences as well as familial situations.
The abstraction of the painted surface, the canvas or paper, through the searching investigations of fateful life events, become not only about the subject or object being depicted, but become an object itself, the sides of the canvas, the colour and the drips are equal in significance to the represented “image”.
Pieces are worked and reworked, layered and overlaid, playing with scale, redaction and layering with inks, oils, glazes and varnish all explored to create pieces which are neither traditional nor safe.
As always this original painting comes with a hand written, wax sealed parchment for authenticity.
Please message me if you have any questions about the piece.
