You Should leave Now
Oil painting 30 x 30 (x 4cm deep edge stretched linen)
An oil painting with loose painterly brush strokes and a textured surface. The overall blue tones give a cool atmosphere whilst highlighting the slightly warmer tones of her skin; her eyes appear to shine bringing her to life. She is open-mouthed, obviously in the process of saying something: ‘You should leave now’.
Current work examines emotion and perception through fictitious characters and de-contextualised dialogue.
Although my image source is usually a photograph I am not trying to create a photo-realist work in any way but rather a re-interpretation of that photo as a painting. I am interested in exploring what happens to the image through the process of applying the paint.
