Vulcan 2017 91x91x5cm


This work is sold but please get in touch to commission similar.


This painting is one of my earliest explorations on different surfaces. A thin latex sheet is strectched over a padded canvas. I have used latex and graphite with chalk to infer the calderaor scarring on a surface in an inhospitible place. With drawing in ink and metallics that reflect and shimmer.


As with the later works, juxtaposing very different surfaces, I wanted the mark making to stand out, to interfere.  I wanted the painting to be more like a scar, a blemish or wound upon the slick rubber.  


The marks have been applied, layer after layer with a brush, but also by dragging a nail through the paint and latex to create new texture and depth. The aggression and violence of some of the marks contrast with the more painterly smooth graduations.
