Round Wood, Cement and Plaster Test Piece

Round Wood

60x60cm

My main issue with the previous series of paintings was how colour completely dominated over physicality. Trying to correct this problem I’ve started playing around with plaster, cement and recently concrete because of the thick sculptural nature of the materials and their neutral colour. This piece was only a tester for a series of paintings I am now working on and should be able upload photos of soon. To my mind the use of colour needs to be reduced back further to almost atonality.
