The paintings above are 3 of 8 small works (300mm x 300mm) in my exhibition at OREXART. They are in the office, not hung and not competing with the larger works. They are a starting point and a little foray into what I have been thinking of doing next on a large scale.
There is an interactive element with all my painting, as I work with reflective and matt surfaces. The glossy under-paint catches the light and follows the movement of a body as it moves past or around the work. It's an effect that I love living with as its eye-catching and makes you hover around the work even more to look at see how the light moves. I love watching people do this in front of my work.
A bright light shinning on the work in a domestic setting becomes like a sun of intensity, it's like the painting has an ability to radiate from it's own source.
The new work has maximum paint variance and luminosity. It needs to be held up to see just how changeable the surfaces are under the natural variance of a range of light sources.
