Minder drøm by Joshua Raymond Diaz, Sydney
Ink, Oil, inks, solvents and medium on canvas / 200 x 170 cm
This series provides emphasis on ‘materiality’ which in my understanding is one’s physical ability to work with a surface such a canvas, and the medium of paint, along with a ‘pure’ or free experimentation to create a tactile sense. I aim to tease out how these processes and the purity of the medium lead to the endless possibilities of colour and its interaction with space. The desire to develop paintings that have an organic sense of tactility is a technical process that I have put into practice. The tactile or ‘real’ aspect of the ‘materiality’ of paint is unique and possesses a rich yet fraught history.
