At the begimming of the week, I was again interested in using up work on paper. I never do anything with the work on a paper in terms of framing or making into finished pieces, so I have always got piles and piles of work. I thought this week that I would try and make some sculpture with them, a kind of 3 d painting but of course when you research 3d paintings the majority of the images were about highly complex illusionert paintings....not what I wanted at all.....keep going ......the first two sculptures were absolutely awful so all that work down the pan......but of course, it isn't really down the pan at all, everything you do feeds into the next work etc, so nothing is wasted and I hope to come back to them, with a better idea.
The first one is built up of small off cuts of wood wrapped in paintings and put together to form this kind of tower. Ugh ! The second, I made a box shape with off cuts of wood and thin mdf that I cut to size with a knife. again , I wrapped the box in a painting . Ugh ! Try again. This was definitely an example of an idea that was better in the concept stage, rather than the reality.
This was a landscape I decided to paint over ,52 cm sq. the one below was the painted over piece. This was in direct contrast to the week where the idea came first, I had no idea with this one where it was going to go....it was much more about the physicality of the paint, rather than anything else.Mmm. Will live with the. Before deciding....
' A time and a place,' acrylic on board, 52 cm sq.
' A Sunday afternoon,' acrylic on board, 52 cm sq. Love the paint and that was what this one was about. Lovely day in paint, in and out of the garden pottering in the paint.
This one is one from a few weeks ago that seemed to be related to thrones I had completed this week. Will live with them for a while. Trying almost to plug the gaps in the displays at home of the ones that have gone to the galleries.
