'Signposts' and 'Market Street Magnestism'
I've been working on some new pieces since I last wrote here. One of my latest pieces is 'Market Street Magnetism' (please see below). This is a mixed media painting of the city of Manchester.

One of the features of a city, and a great theme to explore in a painting, is anonymity. In order to build a textured surface in areas of the painting, I chose to use layers of calico fabric. In particular, I focused on sections that were populated by people. The result of this approach was a distortion of the figures. In this way, there is no fixed point of focus and the viewer feels immersed in city life. Similarly, I have sought to achieve a similar effect in some of my festival crowd paintings.
A selection of my festival paintings can be seen in my current solo exhibition, 'Signposts'. This exhibition continues at the Vision On Gallery (at Valli Opticians) until Friday 10th May.
