UNICOLOR Portraits

WOWDB-set01 WOWDBPI-03 WOWDBGR-01 WOWDBBL-01

WOWCB-01 WOWDBPI-02

Painted with a single pigment in a sandbox method, these faces are the result of taking a chunk of paint and molding it.
Moving around the paint to form faces, finding people that make you feel something, people you didn’t even know you were looking for.
In this series of portraits, the features are not defined, instead the aim is to capture a human spark with minimal intervention.

Flesh Potential

De Kooning once famously said “Flesh is the reason oil paint was invented.” For him flesh mainly meant the skin, but for me it cuts all the way down to the bones.

Perhaps with an inherent sculptural mentality, I shape and arrange the paint, not to exactly mimic, but move along the brink of representation.

This seemingly chaotic and obscure puddle is just a few strokes from becoming something recognisable and alive.

The substance of paint, with its flesh potential, is moulded to find a spark, and capture the potency of life.
