Oil, Ink & Imitation Leaf on Canvas 160 x 210cm
My work is concerned with the construction and layering of painting. By applying thinned paint to canvas soaked in turps, I create areas of intense and washed out colour. Each layers differing ratio of medium to oil results in various textures and patterns. Imitation leaf is then used to highlight interesting details, some of which mimic biological entities. The work is concerned with the conversation between the autonomy of nature and the restrictions of the man-made.
