Creation of new paintings has been pretty sporadic of late, and not really with an overarching theme, but I still want to feature some of this work on my website, so I've created a gallery that includes them.
I'm exploring the abstract side of my work more and using the futurist style that was born from both the 'Rain' and 'Santorini' series. I've been reworking some of my previous paintings in this style, just to see how the different approach works with the same subjects; and with 'The Girl', I was playing with how little of a famous painting I can use whilst still being able to recognise it.
As well as reworking, I've also been creating new works inspired by some of my own design sketches and from existing architecture.
I feel that I am getting somewhere with this latest work and that it might the first steps in bringing everything together. At the same time, I'm trying not to think about a 'grand plan' too much and instead... just do it... I'm definitely guilty of overthinking what goes where and why I'm doing certain things, whether it fits in with that work... should I keep that separate?... should I leave that until I've finished this?... Basically, trying to edit and organise work before I've even created it. I think I should take a more "concept design" approach to my work... get all the ideas down first... work out what it means later.
