Some news about my  Painting and Printmaking exploits

30 x30, Society of Scottish Artists Exhibition, Dec 20-Jan 21

Here, I decided to make a cradle frame, which gives the painting a 3 dimensional feel. I don't usually work this small, which was challenging at times!

Tried something a little different this time. Taking inspiration from Rubens classical paintings, the work explores themes of gender, sexuality, race, and domesticity. The exhibition is virtual and runs until 21 January 2021.

Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts, Interactions of colour, Dec 20-Jan 21

This painting is so hard to capture by photograph. There is a gold coloured paint that looks different depending on the angle it is viewed at. So I was a teeny bit disappointed that the exhibition had to be held online due o COVID restrictions - it really does look so much better in the flesh!

Definition of ‘put a sock in it’ Lexico.com (Oxford dictionary):
British informal

  • (usually in imperative) Stop talking.

Thoughts are free, but we are not free from the consequence of our words and actions. This time is overwhelming . We just need to know where we are going and what to do. We need hope. Hope that the virus will abate , quieten down , retract , be muted.

 

Hope and despair are synonymous with each other. Despair exists in a continuum with hope. Despair at what sometimes feels hopeless . Despair at untruths,  lies, misinformation and a deafening silence at the absurdity of it all . The hypocrisy of it. This work is in direct response to my desire to stop it and them being unbearable. Hope is not given by being hypocritical. Hope must be reflected in positive actions and words
