Artwork description:

The first in a series of paintings based upon a selection of quick-fire drawings that I made of people that came to view Eliasson's Weather Project when it featured in the Tate Modern's great Turbine Hall in 2003.
Whereas the original drawings where all completed in a matter of seconds, the Sun Worshippers paintings (enamel on spray painted aluminium) were laboriously scaled up and painted to give the illusion of the same flow and immediacy of line that is evident in the original thumb nail sketches.
Each of the pieces in the series are painted on 2.5 mm aluminium sheets which are themselves mounted onto 18 mm split battens - giving each piece of work the appearance of hovering slightly clear of the wall upon which they are mounted.

Materials used:

Smooth Hammerite paint & primer on aluminium
