'The Four Corruptions' includes four orbiting shapes representing London landmarks – the Gherkin, Westminster, BT Tower and St Paul's. Each building was carefully selected, not only for its significant architectural status, but as a totem for the type of business performed inside – commerce, politics, media and religion. Textural palimpsest is a predominant element and is visible underneath the pale yellow/green/peach coloured ground.
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.
