20120219: The Carnival Shadow

You and the Carnival Shadow 2012 oil on linen 41 x 41 cm



I don’t set out to make a painting with a palette knife, but my view is the materials and tool should relate to how you  conceive the image and the attitude with which you work through the complexities of form in imagined space.

A brush alone does not achieve that for me because I see the figure wrested from something, carved out of a mass of possibility, chance and uncertainty.

This work has sold.
