Research

My research this semester has been based around very contemporary painters such as Mary Heilmann, Stephen Bambury, Christian Hetzel, Christopher Wool, Robert Ryman, Mark Rothko, Amy Silman and Agnes Martin.

Further to last semester’s body of work, based mostly on the works of Robert Ryman and Mark Rothko, this semester I have been exploring process painting and accidental results. I have been working with gesso, linseed oil, meths, and trying out experimentations on surfaces such as canvas and high quality watercolour paper.

The works of Mary Heilmann interest me for their play with colour, their very playfullness, the loose yet controlled way the paint has been applied, the very markmaking of the brushstrokes and the differing shapes of the canvasses.
