In 'Marching Orders' I present a series of London landmarks (from left to right: Big Ben, the Gherkin, Saint Paul's cathedral, the London Eye and Tower Bridge). Seen without context I've purposely reduced the architecture to dear souvenirs and ordered them as if arranged on a shelf. The colour palette is muted and white washed. The line work is revealed behind dense texture.
About the series: I’m excited about the discoveries made in this, my newest, series – 'blobitecture'. Each canvas is a curation of prominent architecture or cultural icons, now radically reduced and de-contextualized. The shapes are altered as if by blurry rain or faulty memory.
Note: this painting, left unframed, intentionally reveals my artistic process. The random paint build-up and serendipitous drips that coat the sides of the deep edge canvas are meant to be seen.
