Afew years ago I when preparing for my BA show I produced a body of work based on a housing estate called “Waunfawr”. I was interested in a variety of things on that estate- from its sometimes mundane atmosphere, to the beautiful shapes that are created from especially evening light on the brickwork making them glow almost to an orange tone.
The estate also reminded me of the one that I grew up on.
The painting here reflects those feelings at that time with my love of Diebenorns work, and if the abstract expressionist movement in California generally. And more recently I’ve begun to revisit of of these subjects- especially after seeing the wonderful and amazing diebenkorn show at the royal academy in London. It’s amazing!!!!!!!!
But regarding the newer piece- it’s still very much in its early stages!!
