stroking the surface

Stroking the surface
gloss paint on board

This body of work can be seen as an extension of my dilidante process and direction within my practice .
Each of these paintings feature nature and us humans in harmony,however in contrast the shiny arbitrary colours evoke darker meanings.
The blackness is a change of direction from my previous use of bright colours within my work and i feel represents my initial emotional feelings at the time of painting .
This theme of cats observing people is an idea that originates from last christmas spent a my girlfriends motheres house, which has three naughty,playful cats senario im unacucustomed with. They observed my everymove for five days as i slept on the sofa bed.
A cat watching my movements makes me curiouse as to how they must interpret our existence.
Perhaps by viewing things from a cats perspective things can appear innocent .
