Some early oldies but goodies - paintings made in 4th year of study in 1998. I was playing around with textures, embosing undercoats, printing techniques and reduction of colour pallette. Ideas were concerned with notions of femininity, memory and reinterpreting Ad Reinhardt "Black paintings". All oil on board.
3 in the serires called
Forty Black Paintings. 1998
Forty Black Paintings
Many of these paintings sold at our graduate exhibition and I only have these photos as distant memories of a very productive and successful year of painting. The money all helped fund my trip down to Christchurch to begin a Masters Degree at the University of Canterbury School of Fine Art.
