SURRENDER

This painting was done over a few months with many reworks and lots of daring obliterations, which I will document for you later. I was particularly inspired by DeKooning for this one and his relentless layering and the building of texture. 

GRACE UNDER PRESSURE

I started this painting on Christmas day 2017 and it emerged chunk by chunk until the new year.
It felt like a very primal painting to make, it was very spontaneous and I spent very little time editing. It all came out fully formed and I enjoyed the childlike splodges of paint enough to admonish myself to leave them be!
