2.03 - Deliverance

Earthbound - Introduction

The paintings in this series were produced with a limited palette, which was informed by the recent adoption of metal-point drawing as a technique. I chose to utilise a limited range of high quality earth colours after having done some reading on the most unchanging, chemically stable and light-fast colours available. These pigments, in their fixed nature, seemed to me like a kind of base material to rely upon.

 

The works portray figures manipulating natural energies in order to separate themselves from the body of earth they are bound to. A series of printed images was made alongside the paintings. These prints utilised photopolymer plates in both intaglio and relief methods.

 

Works are divided thematically into three groups, which can be explored further by clicking on the links below.
