Product Description – Oil Painting on Linen painted during the lockdown period. This has been a period of new work, exploring a different style than my usual style of painting.
There is no reference for the piece as I started by making marks with charcoal and developed the image over a period of a few weeks. This painting has many flesh-like tones and curves. I felt a strength inside while I was making the work and also the softness of the linen substrate gives a tenderness to the final finish.
Memories and dreams are peculiar things with no definitive shape or size but a feeling. As in a dream, the understanding of the image came during the making the work.
It was created in April 2020. In this new range of work, spontaneity is my aim and allowing myself to paint as I feel at a particular moment. I capture this moment time and time again and the persistent adjustment gives energy and lifeforce to the finished piece
