Projects
  • BLACK PAINT
    BLACK PAINTThe Black Paintings are an attempt to capture light in its most physical sense. The light in the room is central to the painting, it is very much part of the painting. Because of this the painting is never the same, it is always changing as the light changes. My aim was to paint the darkest blacks and the lightest blacks and every shade and depth in-between and put them all on one canvas. Also the emphasis is on the physicality ranges of the paint, from all of its permanence and its thick black
  • BLACK PAINT
    BLACK PAINTBlack is an end point in colour, it is an absence of any colour. I am painting nothing but Black. However black paint captures light, and can absorb light. The surface is constantly moving as the viewer moves, if the viewer stands still they are captured in the paintings reflective surface of thick solid paint. The viewer is face to face with themselves.
