Painting 2009 - 2010
For my BA Show I created a series of 3 large scale works and a series of 20 small egg tempera works on homemade gesso boards. I experimented with light organic stains and dripped poured paint worked over by organized shapes and striped areas. My work is influenced by the german painters Albert Oehlen, Charline Von Heyl & Katharina Grosse. I was inspired by their use of colour & energetic dynamism & I identified that that was what I wanted to communicate. It wasn’t necessarily what they were trying to communicate in their work but it is what I saw & what I wanted to formulate through my work in my way.
