Last weekend I did quite a lot of work as experiment for myself. I'll be posting the results over the next few weeks - as I have been offered a small exhibition space at http://www.galleryguesthouse.com/ here in Plymouth - for paintings based on local themes.
I have to work out the layout for the space - and then work on the paintings. I'll keep people updated here and on Twitter.

Back to this piece - black acrylic on white plastic. I started by making regular scrapes with the side of a palette knife and suddenly realised that the images resembled blocks of flats/apartments - so added window type marks and the suggestion of human figures inside with the knife. Then I realised that the end result also felt like discarded celluloid film. Be interested in what you think out there - I like the ambiguity, and to me the picture has an unsettling quality.

  3. Hiya Steve, just passing by.

    Congrats on the exhibition... hope it goes well.

    The work there made me think of hitchcocks film Rear Window. I'm sure theres no connection.. it was just the very first thing that came to mind.

    Hope you're well, Shane.

  4. Hi there Shane - without a word of a lie I had thought of calling this piece 'Rear Window(s)'- but the discarded film theme kept on suggesting itself..
