una muy buena muestra… exultnte
lovely work! reminds me of jenny saville workbut of course is just a reference this one has its own character!cheers!
I’m having such fun browsing your work right now – your ability to combine figurative and abstract forms, textures and colours, is inspiring.
Gareth. Your work is very advanced. What is your palette? It’sall quite terrific. Are you showing?
Haha, Ted, if only I could nail that palette down! I try to limit it, but in the heat of the moment I often want to add a touch of something else, which inevitably spreads itself around. I’m tempted to remove all but six tubes from my studio for a while! And I do show occasionally, including a couple of pieces on permanent display in regional Victorian Galleries, but my next show isn’t until mid 2010, in Melbourne. Love your work and can scarcely credit the volume of it!
Thanks Gareth .It’s just that I have just been introduced to the Reilly palette and I think that’s what you are using.You manage it so adroitly that I thought you had a method or plan. I’m amused and impressed that you operate so intinctively
Ted, it’s really encouraging to hear that. In my town, these works don’t float so well, but I loved making them. The palette consists mainly of Burnt Umber, French Ultramarine, Yellow Ochre, Naples Yellow and Zinc White, but I use Olive Green, Indian Red, Payne’s Grey, Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Orange and Flesh Tint regularly to change skin tones… not to mention the other cadmiums and umbers which get dragged in from time to time… as I said, I really ought to put some more thought into it all, and have Ralph Mayer’s handbook gathering dust on the shelf, aching to help me out. I’ll be back in the studio next week, so I’ll begin by investigating your palette!
Thanks very much Gareth! same as yours!
Man, I love pieces like this…loose, but true, evident brush strokes that scream ‘made by hand by a human!’
Who says I’m human?
ha, well…you might be good enough to be inhuman.
Love this piece, love the way you have handled the subject matter!
Amazing ..a wonderful shocker of a painting..and so well done.. it’s great!!!
Oh I love that description – ‘a wonderful shocker of a painting’! One of the greatest compliments I’ve had!
