Aqualis, (2016) Acrylic and oil on cotton, 110x110cm.JPG

Large spills

 

A series of paintings working with the aesthetic principles and notions of control begun in my previous project, The Spill.

Generally considered to be beautiful paintings these works capture the dynamic between intention and accident.

Composed of three opposing paints (oil, acrylic and water colour) applied to the surface in a single m sequence of intuition and response. The interactions between the paint are unpredictable, yet controlled.

My commission for The Gainsborough Bath Spa is linked to these works.
