Art Brut New Paintings

This is a new series for me, a more primitive departure from my usual more controlled graphic style/process which has a definitive beginning, middle and end. It’s more representative of the way I painted in my early days, pre graphics tablet illustration. The cardboard forces me to loosen my stroke and the work is more gestural. The images include portraits, and figures, often winged, but I see them as more super hero cape type wings. These sort of bee/bird creatures have also evolved. as well as city skylines, planes, etc. They are an exercise in letting go of control and the need to be ‘finished’.
