There are always new paintings, it really isn’t an option not to paint. tere are always things ot paint on, there are often points to be made.
Right now the focus of the new paintings is towards fresh layers of growth, the flora that has been part of my recent output as an artist trying to exist in the gentrification and destruction of East London. Ahead of the forthcoming Flora and Forna edition on the Art Car Boot Fair (opening May 15th, an on-line event) I shall be producing a number of paintings on the thoughtlessly discarded boards of greedy estate agents picked up off streets, on the waste material that people just throw out with little regard for these times of drastic climate change. Still playing with the idea that when we’re all gone, Mother Nature will reclaim it all back with her layers of fresh growth.
In terms of the fair, I shall also be presenting the most recent in the ongoing series of daily concluded Ten paintings, a series of paintings on 10cm square canvas that have been evolving here in the studio on a daily basis since July 2020. Always on 10cm square canvas, always offered in line with the notions of the Cheap Art Manifesto, at a price of £10, the 30 paintings produced in April will be offered first via the Art Car Boot Fair.
