Gallery: Body of Work
The Gallery: Body of work depicts art works included in my continuously developing art practice. I am a painter of transience and memory. I aim to capture visually an essence or a moment in time, a memory which interprets a person, an event or a place. I am fascinated by a fleeting moment which, when revisited, allows for a discovery of greater depth and meaning.
A body of work is comprised of multiple pieces that are cohesive in nature. It usually doesn’t represent an artist’s oeuvre, a word that most often refers to an artist’s lifetime of work. A body of work shows that an artist consistently produces art that is distinctive and of a predictable, suitable quality.
My current body of work focuses on where I live – postcode 2011 propinquity. My works are based on photographs used to create a drawing which is then translated into a mono print which is painted into with acrylic or oil. I also incorporate embroidery into the final layer of the artwork.
Earlier works were based on old family photographs, which are both familiar and hauntingly transient. I worked digitally to create images which start with an old photograph but are then re-contextualised to create new meaning incorporating new backgrounds which include fabric and texture. The final layer is hand drawn creating a unique multi layered work of art. If you are interested in purchasing one of my art works in my gallery: body of work please contact me.
