NEW WORK

April 24th, 2016

I started a new series of paintings and drawings back in January for future shows in the UK and Belgium in mid and late 2018. I can’t post many of the pictures because obviously there has to be an element of “reveal” at the exhibitions but I thought I would post this first painting.
It’s a portrait of a great guy called Max who didn’t know me from Adam when we first met but was open minded and trusting enough to pose for a series of nude and clothed studies so thanks for embracing the project Max, you were brilliant. I wanted to jump up a gear in scale because it’s a large museum show so it’s a big painting at 6′ x 5′ and I found the shift in scale very enjoyable. I made this painting in monochrome because I wanted to keep it simple, raw and broken down to the bare essentials. I wanted to represent the intensity and physical presence of Max with no distractions in the composition. Here are some photographs charting the progress.DSC03213-original-b2 DSC03107-head-e-mail DSC03104-e-mail DSC_0716 DSC03048-bb-e-mail
