Can of Paint...


graphite, putty eraser, wax crayon & watercolour/30x20cm

Being the latest in the ‘roadkill’ diptych series, this example the most ‘painterly’ yet in terms of overall surface, with even the bare aluminium areas of the represented found object/subject matter being rendered in watercolour, when habitually such features have previously been left as ‘exposed’ graphite however much of the remainder of the surface has been treated & built up with overlays of discrete brushstrokes of translucent paint, in line with recent developments & as also occurs in this particular instance, in the ongoing interests of the explicit display of the process of the facture of the drawing-painting, the (manual) work of art.

Soundtrack:

Pontone
’s ‘Spectral Cassette’ Vol.4
The Geraldine Fibbers ‘Hut Recordings’
Jesca Hoop ‘Kismet’


Digression: a thought occurred whilst listening to the commentary on the Algeria v England World Cup football match this evening. Whilst it is said that 'no man is an island' - what about blokes named Barry?

or blokes named 'White'...? rather bizarrely i made made a random connection with the singer, hmmm... but was actually thinking it would verbally allude to the Isle of Wight...

I think that was one of those occasions when my brain was just itching, Jazz, & then a case of 'Speak(ing) Your Brains' in the best traditions of 'The Day Today' - must have been the tedium of the football match in which 'Barry' was being repeatedly mentioned, it just brought on a bout of silliness (which isn't necessarily a bad thing!)...
