Acrylic on canvas. 760mm x 760mm
extract from blog, 7.2.14:
My work reflects complexities and contradictions: I need to paint representations of distressed and derelict metal on clean, primed canvas. I need to encapsulate what is rough and abrasive with varnish, which halts the processes of decay. I need to work with colours that are alien to my subject: fizzy lemon for a rusty fo'c'sle chequerplate, or cool blue for a sheet of unspeakably mutilated ship-side, as we see here.
