Traces

As I am working through various options for series paintings /pastels my images are becoming lighter, it feels more ethereal, making suggestions rather than statements.

So although the previous ones have been about the body these pick up on lines marks on the jezzo or canvas giving a very different feel, and is very much something I have not done before. Its also interesting to me that with the previous blog about imperfection there were errors in making, here there were not really errors at all but using natural blemishes and thus a connection to skin.

Avis Newman (Tate modern search) has been a great inspiration with this with her gestural works painted on canvas   that she hung on the wall during the 1980s.
