I Love You All Infinity
Painting/Drawing: Pastel on Charcoal on paper / 100cm x 70cm
A pastel/charcoal painting/drawing done in memory of Suzy Brown. This is a picture of Suzy between two rocks with the ocean in the background… drawn from observation of an online picture of her. The forms are seemingly abstract (due to unfamiliarity with the synthesis of subject and figure pose) but it’s only the texture that really deviates. She had just turned 30. How do you depict joining infinity?
Part of an on-going study that attempts to conceptually unify subject and space. A structuralist approach with cubist and expressionist aspects mixed together. Through fragmentation and overlapping, there is transparency which leads to a visual and conceptual unity. Even though it’s representational and done with a drawing plan, rendering the surface feels close to automatism. The surface texture is made with parameters in mind but is also spontaneous and chaotic; rules are broken as a rule. No boundaries, just line and colour, drawing and painting, feeling and logic.
