I have two solo shows coming up later in the year, and have started painting for them. Like my previous work, the themes for the show are still concentrated on human emotion, memory and feelings, although this time less narcissistic and focusing on others dreams and terrors. I have been studying the work Mary Ellen Mark, Ralph Eugene Meatyard and Harmony Korine recently, and some imagery or people that appear in the paintings may be familiar.
I will upload process videos as regularly as I can be bothered to give an idea of how and where I work. Part 1 is fairly scarce as work has only just begun and mostly involves drawing and blocking in shapes and colours. Later episodes will show more work progression as detail is added. Oh, and apologies for the low quality, it was shot using isight.
