Happy New Year!
To start 2016 off right, I thought I'd share these paintings they are in the faculty show at Neilson Park Creative Centre, in Etobicoke (Toronto), which runs today to Jan 31.
I've asked the centre to hang them in pairs as you see here, except for one painting (not shown here) that will hang solo.
If you click on any of these images you will be taken to a larger view of it on my Flickr page, where you can also see some nice close-up details.
All of these are small, 12" x 12", canvases or wood panels.
I use this size as a kind of painting journal, where I try things out, have painterly thoughts, make discoveries.
One of the newer (for me) ingredients I worked with in three of these was fluorescent colour. I've also scraped, scratched, masked, texturized, crackled, dry brushed, glazed and impastoed (though that's not really a word, is it?).
I hope you'll have a chance to visit these paintings in person.
As a visual artist I like nothing more than getting up to my elbows in paint or little plastic toys, or wading in at the deep end in pursuit of an idea. When I am not teaching others in a similar vein, you can find me researching, writing and noodling around in my studio, seeing where my latest lines of inquiry lead me.
