Painting Log (a.) : 20.12.2017

Slowly. Slowly. Moving forward. Making sense. Erasing? Simplifying? Well, not quite. But I am clarifying in my head what needs to be done to finish off up to five paintings in the Folk Songs series. It’s a process of marrying and responding to image working with image…

Take these two images for example, they were never intended to work together, but somehow by accidentally being stacked together they struck up a conversation and became friends.

They’re now to be married.

The backdrop (in the background) has been screaming out for attention for ages, I’m planning to disrupt it with layers of hand prints obliterating some of the hardedge graphic drawn quality.
There’s a story here. It just needs writing.
