DARK MATTER 2019 Acrylic on Velvet over Canvas 91 x 91 x 4 cm
Available - here
This painting, the latest in my velvet paintings is full of silvers graphite and sparkles on deepest black elvet which works best in good light where it truly come to life and hides it's dark side, glimmering and sparkling when the light catches the different hints of colour in the metallic flakes and textures. .
I continue to use different sizes and types of mark making with various tools to create the dragging and furrowed effects radiating out from the centre.
In my abstract painting I often use the paint like any other material, to obtain a surface a texture, a sculptural property, more than in a more traditional way, to represent. I like to work on different surfaces to evoke a particular feeling, association, or thought, such as velvet, rubber, vinyl, wood as well as canvas.
The constant round and round, check and recheck, over and over, undo and redo,...all build up into a mark, a stain, a moment in time such as occurs in nature.
This work will be marked on the back with the following:
