Following my recent success with my work being selected for an exhibition at Art 23, I have submitted my new painting to the next competition.
I have just met the deadline and am nervously waiting to hear about the outcome.
The piece entered is As follows:
One Legged Pool Player
120 x 80
mixed media on unprimed canvas
Current research issue – Waiting: Uncertainties of Tomorrow
Through painting, printmaking, experimentation and risk taking, I try to question the idea of suspension in the vacuum of repetition. My focus is on entrapment in mundane routines, which are necessary in order to exist. My work is a vibrant and polychromatic attempt, to discuss the underlying narrative of lives of people, who I have developed a rapport with during my research expeditions.
The project is intended to be a deep, highly subjective and personal reflection on the essence and meaning of our repetitive journey through the ‘ocean’ of time, which is given to us – adventurous and bizarre travel between the boundaries of birth and death.
Through my projects I feel that I discover my inner fears, longings and re-evaluate my uncertainties. My work seems to be an attempt to explore and question by metaphorical presentation my response to the hidden truths of the world. The essence of the value of these works is in their inherent meaning and an atmosphere, which manifests itself in the dusk of the space portrayed, thus the light may appear, where the hue of colour fulfils clarity and sounds with harmonious melody.
The confirmation of my entry is below.
