Oil Paint on Board
Exploring both figure and the abstract with oil paints and varnishes.
This piece is created with oil paint on thick plyboard, the initial image is worked up onto the unprimed board, allowing the image and paint to embed in the board, this is then worked into and layered. Using the board unprimed is a an unconventional method, but this experimental way of working really excites me. Working into the surface because the surface and paint are just as important to me as the subject.
My newest work explores the space between fantasy and reality, the exploration of sexual desire within an art context.
I love the emotion and longing within this painting, the tension in the pose.
This striking image would work well in a contemporary home.
