New Paintings 2019
My expanded paintings of 2019 interprets and contextualizes marginal landscapes. Consisting of two parts; a series of static representational oil painting and animations projected onto static large drawings. Using expanded painting and drawing practice the artist reinterprets landscapes of the urban fringe, sites of abandonment and accrual.
The artworks are palimpsest landscape collages of time and decay, in a metaphysical sense sites of forgetting and remembering. “I feel they represent the front line of a battle between nature and human interference, a world where you can see both the past and the future within the site.” - Dennis McCart. The artist considers these sites a truer vision of contemporary landscape while evoking a rich source of aesthetic, social and environmental conversations.
This series was shown at Grey Street Galleries, South Bank in June 2019.
