Artwork description
A large-scale female figure study on canvas in oils using a muted palette contrasting with areas of vibrant colour. Painted with a loose application of paint, ranging from thin glazes to thicker impasto. It continues my interest in the presentation and concepts of beauty. We are exposed to countless images of the manipulated perfection of the human form. This work is a counterbalance to this through the use of uneven surface textures and blotches of paint. Creating an awkward or flawed beauty.

The works address the representation of traditional painting motifs. Such as the portrait and nude. Informed by popular cultural references from fashion, advertising media and television, and influenced by the work of Francis Bacon, Egon Schiele, and the illustrator Ralph Steadman.

The paintings are representational but intend to suggest rather than depict an accurate observation. This is more apparent as the viewer approaches the work. The painted surface dissolves into a seemingly unorganized arrangement of blotches and irregular textures.

Artwork signed on the back and includes a certificate of authenticity.
