Here’s what I’ve been working on lately. I’ve finished the series about the magicians, for the moment. There are now 12 paintings in the ‘sawing a woman in half’ series, and I may decide to make more at a later date, but for now they are finished.
I like to alternate between my types of painting, and so now I am working on some abstract mixed media pieces. I have been using acrylic on canvas, and also I’ve started painting on some post industrial waste plastic sign boards that I bought from a waste reuse company in Leeds called S.C.R.A.P. . It’s a great place to find cheap materials that would otherwise end up in landfill. I bought some lovely shiny black perspex too, that I’m in the middle of making into new paintings.
Here’s two new finished pieces:
Here’s a work in progress picture of the four I’m working on, on the black perspex.
And if you remember me mentioning in a previous post about how I’m working with artist Fred Pepper to organise a group show in Leeds this autumn which was going to be in an empty office building.. Well, we have had to change our venue as someone is now moving into the empty office!
We are going to have our exhibition at Sela Bar instead, and I’ll be writing all about that soon. It looks like it will be a great venue. We are going to be part of the Love Arts Leeds Festival, which is running at the same time as the British Art Show in Leeds, so October will be an exciting time for us!
