‘Blue 4’. Mixed media on 20×16″ canvas
These are the latest versions of the blue series (Number 2 is finished). The rest are still in progress and I’m now collaborating with composer/cellist Atzi Muramatsu on the series. We’ll be responding to each other’s creative progress which will feed into the final results of paintings and music. As always I’ll post results of our work here via video and images.
It’s a pleasure as always to work with Atzi, who collaborates across many art forms including dance – we’re buzzing with ideas at the moment! You can view/hear Atzi’s work Here and Here
Also, this video shows our most recent small collaboration..
The latest versions of ‘Blue series 2’ and ‘Blues series 4’
Playing around with texture, colour etc, with a mix of acrylic, salt, black dylon, marble dust, Prussian blue, varnish, Indian ink and anything else that’s available. These are all still on 20×16 inch canvas, some painted over previous paintings I didn’t finish or wasn’t satisfied with. I’m no closer to going on to bigger canvas so these are ideas in progress.
The light was fading so these aren’t quite focussed.
Experimenting with points of light today on dark backgrounds. Once I’m happy with a composition I’ll be going onto large canvas (these ones are 20×16″)
Some experimenting today with tones, using various shades of blue and black, with layers of varnish and marble dust.
The black one is looking a bit Vija Celmins! But I have various developments in mind – mostlyt to do with texture and depth
