abstract artwork to refresh your soul.
riding a bike
that first few minutes when you wake
remebering good times<
br>all these things
are key to my art
i like to work with all media dont really want to stick to same style all the timebut i will always return to drawing fineart when the mood takes me.
the last two years i have concentrated on abstracts using used metals denim worn jeans then cementing them on marine ply and then covering the whole work with a bituminous elastomeric membrane .Then i will use a welders blow torch and burn through to where the cemented items are to reveal them then i am ready to paint this is my base.
It takes about 3 to 4 weeks for all this to dry before i even think what other colours and textures to use.ill work on 4 at a time and all you see in escapysm will be in private exhibition at the Godfrey Pilkington gallery at ST Helens near liverpool in 2010 this is my lifetimes work most never seen till now hope you enjoy.
