Ode to Creativity

I have just finished a very successful solo exhibition, it was two years lead up, creating new works, both 2D and 3D, it was an amazing 2 years, taking images and forms from out of my head and imagination, and transforming the nebulous into the concrete, it was sometimes painful sometimes boring and often joyous, hitting ‘the zone’ Ultimately it was my voice speaking in a visual language, hopefully connecting via thoughts and process.

You can see images, and follow my journey via my blog.

Here are some images taken from my current exhibition at Sam Scorer.

Had an amazing evening event with Dan & Julien playing guitar & using electronic interface to produce amazing musical response to the changing earthscapes of my work.

Lists, to do’s, and finish offs

This panel continues my “Earth Series”panels, it is 4′ x 4′ painted in acrylic, gilded with dutch metal, and patinated.

I continue with my exploration of emergence, evolution, and entropy.

When finishing a panel, because they are very heavy, the panel needs to be braced, edges tidied up, and the back to be cleaned and painted. I find this aspect very much a chore but a necessary one. I have endless lists, such as buy needed equipment, brushes, wood glue, scalpel blades, sand paper, and…………… next on the list, keep up with blog, and posts, and other media networking stuff,  and not even mentioning sourcing display frames, etc. I shall stop now as I feel a scream coming.

“Chasm”

This panel is a bit of a departure from my other work, I have tried to illustrate by texture the types of rock surface. I t is not finished yet but is well on the way. The title “Chasm” is self explanatory.

Below is a selection of close ups of texture detail. This is still a work in progress.

Naming the work

Work continues with commission, but I have decided to give it a working title, much easier on the ear, I am calling it “Chosen Lands”. Why?, because it is based on a panel called “Terrain”, and chosen because it has been selected by clients for their home, nothing very complicated, but it has a resonance beyond the obvious, something about choice, and home, and ownership. Appropriate really. I am working the panels side by side, as I need them to flow from one to the other, almost as if they are reaching out to join, (another metaphor?) I also want them to be able to stand alone, be similar yet separate, thereby giving more options.

1st image, close up of layers      2nd image you can see the two panels side by side.

I have had to move out of inner studio, to larger space until I have got all layers fixed, fun and games.
