First piece for 2017. 'Anxiety of our time' it's nice to be drawing again, but it's a shame the first piece of the new year is so angst driven. The current state of the political climate is putting those around me on such edge, and it can't help but manifest into thinking and then into visual form.

'Shower' continuing to look at the un still life. Half way between a study and a painting. Drawing on A1 2017.
'Home' I've always wanted to further dabble in still life. My home is full of energy, mainly from other people's art. It has probably gotten to a point where it does make for interesting inspiration. Decided to do a few pieces based on the still life. This is the first on paper.
2017. Let's make it fierce.

Final wall in this exhibition 'Fast food psychology' from my time in San Fran and New York. A mash of fast food, homelessness and the subconscious. There were six works in this series, and a lot of broken brain cells. Thanks again for a show that was. Till next time ✌️
Fusing fast food psychology paintings with the contemporary lifestyle setting, I produced 'the girl series'. Putting the work I had completed on the studio wall and shooting the female figure in the foreground, I repainted work I had already completed again, for a second time in the background to the figure. It created a simplified interpretation of the original painting, and filled the backdrop of the composition. Creating what I ended up calling 'Super Psychology', because I was re seeing what I had already experienced.
The drawing wall. I did these studies leading into Super Psychology, they activated a way of bringing the female figure element together with the fast food psychology element. They then spurred on the series of paintings with the girl in the front of the fast food paintings. I really stripped things back in these drawings, majorly focusing on line and shape, with an element of colour to accentuate.
'Stable instability' this sculptural element was a comment on distortion within the contemporary lifestyle setting. Which the second part of the exhibition features, the idea that you can create the perfect home which can actually be built on un stable psychology. A beautiful design built on distortion.
'New York Spirit' created this mural as an ode to all the free thinking ladies beating down the mosoginistic qualities of a has been conservative culture. Something I found pretty prevalent in New York was a broader understanding of equality. Only yesterday in Melbourne I saw a car load fat idiots wolf whistling and jeering from their van. These are the kinds of turds that need to be flushed down the toilet.
