Constructivism March 2019

This is my latest progress documenting my explorations into constructivism. For the first time in years I’ve moved away from watercolour as a brush painted medium. The paintings featured are all acrylic on board. I needed to have more control over the colour as well as being able to change my while creating the painting, […]

Constructivism Continued

I’m still working on the division of space broadly through the use of Phi. here is a brief explanation on the development of one particular construct. In the first image I have used a very simple symmetry dividing the drawing along two identical perspectives. Below I experimented with introducing a circular form. The options here […]

Constructivism February 2019

After my 2018 explorations into the De Stjil school I decided to further explore my interests in the division of space through what could loosely be described as an initial foray into constructivism. This forms an extensive and very influencial part of 20th century modern art. Essentially it’s name is gives it away, an image […]

Aerosols January 2019

I’ve started 2019 revisiting my aerosol explorations. It’s a perfect medium for me to expand my interests in colour, contrast and geometry. I’ve included a varied set of six here for you as well as some photographs and explanations of the process and thoughts behind the work. Excuse the slightly off centre photographs, I need […]

Colour Contrast June 2018

Here are a series of six colour studies painted in watercolour. Essentially they are a compacted representation of what can be achieved using a very primitive set of colour mixes revolving around the basic six  primary and tertiary colours. Although there are 6 paintings, in theory each square could be interpreted as a separate painting […]

Aerosol Paintings

Here are 12 of my very latest paintings. They are all painted with black aerosol paint on watercolour paper. There are a number of techniques I’m experimenting with to mask certain areas out. It’s all about being patient and accurate. What I’m looking to highlight is simple contrast. Making (as with watercolour) the white of […]

Squares And Spheres

Here is a story in pictures about how may latest work has developed. They vary in size from 50 x 70 cm to 35 x 50. It’s all based on using directly opposing colours in a slightly less structured way than my cube work from 2017. I’ve not included every painting on the journey just […]
