Macrocosmic, Microcosmic

Timelapse of the future (video) As if through a window, a single point then line, a universe, and back again – animated sketch of a single line drawing: note to self: The universe inside the black dot/macrocosm, microcosm

Random Motion

Following on from the previous post: The drawing in oil on card above was created with the discarded material from a painting: The marks, though randomly made, never-the-less seem to be a self-organising whole. It makes me wonder, is the ultimate state of everything disorder (entropy) or is it actually order arising out of a […]

A Significant Difference

There is a significant difference in quality between the digital files I habitually post (as in 2nd image below) and the high res files (immediatley below). The high re files allow for closer scrutiny of fine detail (enlargement in the header image) giving a better idea of the painting (123 x 125 cm) in real life, not possible using the lower […]

One opportunity I found particularly valuable was being shown how to make a projection mapping installation at South Kiosk Gallery in Peckham. We worked in groups and achieved a poetic end result which in turn made me think of my painting. This surprised me as […]

Awaiting its Conclusion

The painting started off with a visual of the six persimmons, round things. I have brought the painting to its current state and been cogitating on it at length and now see how I can bring it to its inevitable conclusion. The painting itself becomes the subject matter such that its conclusion was impossible to […]
