Serpentine – Sculpture created from found objects

By , 03/07/2015 11:03 am

Serpentine is a sculpture created from recycled roll-cage tubing, scrap metal off-cuts and found objects. I fabricated the sculpture by reshaping the tubing and welding to my desired shape. I have left this sculpture to rust as I really like the reddish patina – it will outlive me.

Abstract Painting: Explorations of the Mind 2

By , 12/09/2009 10:17 am

This painting is experimental in both technique and subject matter. I have used both acrylic in the early stages building up layers and dribbling paint from a stick at different angles. I then used glazes of oil paint to build up depth, colour and tonal changes. As for the subject – well judge for your self.

Abstract paintings displayed at Cambridge Gallery

By , 07/02/2009 12:01 pm

Two of my abstract paintings are now hanging at Cambridge based Williams Art Gallery.

I have had some very positive feedback about both paintings, Inside Out and Street Walk, from fellow artists and visitors. It always good to get feedback (good or bad) especially with abstract art as it is fascinating to find out if the viewer sees what you intended or something completely new.   A lot of work time and much thinking went into creating both paintings.

Watching paint dry

Three are landscapes and two are abstract. Hopefully, I will post some pics of them soon.

The work by Nick Welsh is very graphical and based on his recent journey to San Francisco and well worth a look.  And the paintings by Gail and Tess are also very beautiful and impressive.

We just had the private view a lot of people turned out and best of all really liked the work.
