Announcing my upcoming art show at ME Gallery, St Leonards – 21-25 May 2019. It is a collection of 30 faces to focus on men’s mental health. The show is called ‘Old man, take a look at my life’.
All works are the result of painting ‘veloce’ style. Veloce is a term I’ve used to describe the all prima impasto style where all paintings are completed in one session, usually in only an hour or two. Veloce means ‘fast’ or ‘quick’.
The theme of the show is a close up on expression and character through impasto. Each image is captured viscerally – images frozen in moments of contemplation, absurdity and disconnection. It discusses men’s mental health and moments of laughter and self reflection.
‘Painting, to me, is an energy exchange to capture expression through gestural brushwork with a limited palette.’
