Description

10-30-18 Sherbet & Hiccup is a large scale double dog portraits on canvas in oils using a muted palette contrasting with areas of vibrant colour. Painted with a loose application of paint, ranging from thin glazes to thicker impasto.

The works address the representation of traditional painting motifs.  Informed by popular cultural references from fashion, advertising media and television, and influenced by the work of Francis Bacon, Egon Schiele, Francisco Goya and the illustrator Ralph Steadman.

The visceral works utilize animal forms juxtaposed with abstract mark making. Achieved through the application of thick impasto paint, glazing, dragging and smudging the painting surface. Plus the occasional ‘happy accident’. All these elements contribute to the process of making or constructing a painting, or ‘how to paint’.

10-30-18 Sherbet & Hiccup is representational but intend to suggest rather than depict an accurate observation. This is more apparent as the viewer approaches the work. The painted surface dissolves into a seemingly unorganized arrangement of blotches and irregular textures.

Artwork signed on the back and includes a certificate of authenticity.
