Finger Painting

These digital images were made using a free drawing app for iPhone called Brushes.

It is a simple interface with a few variations of pixelated brush tips to choose from which limits your gestures to dragging a finger across the small screen of the smartphone.

I have been using this app to experiment with colour combinations intended to be translated into my paintings, and I find having the colour wheel to select from extremely useful.

Drawing in this way sacrifices the precision of working with a pen or brush but retains the enjoyment of drawing with immediacy and vibrant colour.

Laser Guided

This was my first time having something laser cut, small ply wood boards approximately 72cm x 39cm in size. The precision of the cutting is very satisfying, and it enables the two pieces to be layered and joined perfectly.

Shown here is the two layers pressed and glued, where the line-work is the supporting frame of the back of the board. This line-work mimics the composition I intend to paint on the reverse side.

I also really like the pieces left over, cut out from the negative spaces. They are beautiful little shapes to play with, like that of a children's educational puzzle.

TWINS is a revision of the first mirrored pair I made in 2015 during my MFA titled Situs Inversus. Utilizing my now refined geometries while reworking a known outcome, using the same colour scheme was an enjoyable exercise and I am happy with the (updated) result.

The second in a new series of paintings. A strange hypnotic flow of free association.

Acrylic, ink and spray paint on board. [40 x 30 cm]

New work / odd face.

This is the first painting I have finished after moving in to my new studio. It took some time to set up my work-space, but I am really feeling at home there now. After finishing this first piece I look forward to building a new series, upon such a foundation.
