Pastel Cont.

I have been thinking alot about depicting nature, and the more I experiment, the more I think after working for such a long time representing Nature, it is the logical step to abstract, (colour, form, composition) for dramatic effect. More to come.

Night Drawing session

Recently I have been interested in depicting Natural objects through the use of different mediums such as pastel and coloured pencil. As far as a subject matter goes, the colours that flowers produce are absoloutly superior to other natural objects in kingdom plantae. Drawings on their way!

Inner Dialogue - Project Beginning

A Bit about the project -

Through creating a Document of recorded Internal Dialogue taken during the period of time when a work is being created, I want to present Paintings and drawings, That instead of purely representing a location or reality, represent my experience of the space/time, On levels spanning beyond the Visual, and into the mental.
To fully understand an individual’s experience in a certain location, or with objects or figures, we have to take into account the reality of the situation and combine it with what is happening in the head of the person depicting the subject. The mental state they are in during the period of depiction is just as important as the physicality of the situation when it comes to the resulting painting or drawing.
Through paintings and drawings I plan to work directly from life with no additional material (such as photographs), and while doing so take notes on everything I am thinking and feeling including an internal dialogue recorded in the form of notes initially which later may be transferred into a recorded device/ other images/ text based slide show / scroll etc.

The Notes I have taken during the creation of the above images is currently being transferred into a recording, "watch this space."

Life Painting - The first nude study

The Social Contract - in progress

About :
In an investigative process, I plan to work with my Ideas of how the world would work without Social contracts.
In a sense Social contracts were put in place to limit animalistic behavior and stop people acting out every desire regardless of its impact on others.
Through paintings and drawings using Animal imagery and specific reference to a diverse range of situations I will comment on how People would act If social contracts didn’t exist, how we are just animals and our sophistication is a result of the boundaries that we have grown up understanding as absolute.

My work will be particularly focusing on high society and tradition, the type of situations in which certain etiquette is required to fit in. Introducing animals into these particular situations we can begin to understand the impact of social contracts on the Human race.

More work is on the way!
