I’ve been playing with digital variations on the ‘charged’ shape from the last post, I’m working towards a gallery installation early next month that will be painted directly on to the walls. The installation will involve repetition and variation of the colour of the shape.

These digital renderings are extremely crude, but provide a sound means of testing ideas.

One of the 3 wall drawings I currently have on display in the Orpheus Building, Belfast as part of the MFA show. I am honoured that the image was used in the exhibition flyer.

Wall drawing is becoming more focussed and minimal, though I hesitate to use that word. Something is activated when multiple layers of chalk are built up, the form appears more solid and sculptural.

Further wall drawing, further following of rules.

The wall turns black, ready for new drawings.

I glued sand to the top part of this piece, it was inspired by decaying flowers.

These 3 pieces were chosen and framed by Engine Room gallery curator Cliff Brooks. They started life as part of a larger piece that didn’t work, and I subsequently cut up. I am always amazed when  a large overworked piece can be cut down and arranged to good effect in this way.  The lines and shapes can suggest heavy industry.
