Artist's description:

Wedded Glitch, created in mixed media on circular canvas with multiple layers of glazes and varnish is a complex image which reveals more the more you look at it. The piece is a beautiful bride, but layered in sadness, which you can see in her eyes, the glitching surface of brush strokes and veiling pearlescent pigment give the image a slightly uncomfortable essence of foreboding.
The piece is made initially with inks and watercolours and worked into with layers of acrylic paints and layers of varnish, this piece has over 20 layers of glazes and varnishes.
Wedded Glitch 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.
