The photo I took at “Cheshunt” last week is an interesting example of distortion, in this case a somewhat blurred view of reality. I was on Redbubble the other day when I came across a magnificent painting “Walk on By” by Australian artist Lee Wilde. Check out her work when you have time. This particular painting is full of blurred images and although different from today’s photo, has inspired me to look at using both clear and unclear/blurred images in some of my pencil drawings. I love areas of mystery in artwork and in Lee’s painting there is much to work out and enjoy. I want this same journey of discovery in some of my “Cheshunt” drawings. I’m really keen to start straight away but I have a painting to complete, a commission to start and a drawing to finish. And there’s the garden… I might “sneak” a bit of time here and there and work on a few ideas.
My ‘Bread” exhibition will open at Cafe Eleven in Launceston on April 4 at 6pm. I will post the exhibition on this blog, one painting a day and include the 5 drawings which will not feature at the opening (I am only showing a baker’s dozen).
