Two contemporary practitioners' artistic researches have had some bearing on my own. Firstly, my work has been influenced by that of Tomma Abts, her holding and unfolding space and use of light from different sources. “There is a tense dialogue between the pictorial illusion of space in her paintings and the literal surface.” (Tom Morton, “Terminally New”, Frieze, No 97, March, 2006). In my work the illusive, emerging and disappearing boundaries and shapes which
Laura Owens uses paint as its own medium; it is a territory of a subject matter I use to draw and paint and is also the established “ideology” in relation to which I am using the different visual themes of photography and video together with painting and drawing. The paintings and drawings here have a closer similarity within their imagery and manner to the built constructed forms, whereas the video in its subject matter could be its own self-contained, separate reality to that of a different visual perception from the non-mechanical practices.

Information about the painting

Equipment Oil on linen, technical gelatine and linseed oil.
Technical The shading in light and dark takes a main aspect of a chiaroscuro impression which is used along with the empty spaces, shapes and forms. The structural motifs are the recurring shapes I draw which have the distinctive appearance of a chain of rhyming forms. There is an undecided element in using the perspective leading me to concentrate on how I can develop and use it as an instrument to invent new patterning. The various pronounced subtleties I produce are used to expose and express different inclinations, both perceptually within the human mind and in relation to the image, as Laura Owens did in her work; pictorial questions are used as a type of dialogue and instrument to evolve the details' expression as they develop through practice. My working method includes adding a series of layers as I decidedly alter the pictorial constructions in exploring exposed formations the oil paint can inhabit.
