This is what i wrote up for painting.
Theme For Painting. 2011
This Year I intend to develop into a more mature artist, figuring what my direction is exploring. I have become interested in expressionist movements, basically anything with a real emotional grit catches me, I think it is an amazing and extremely hard feat to express emotion in a figurative piece. Some artists that inspire me and have achieved what I’m aiming for are:
- Vincent Van Gogh
- Egon Scheile
- Sir Francis Bacon
- Jean-Michel Basquiat
The pieces I create will be based on a kind of metaphysical collage of my mind, I feel sometimes the world is speeding past so fast its hard to grab a hold of. This is what I want to paint, the images from my life, flashing up, torn and faided.
Themes like; Fears, Family, Myself, Future, Anexietys, Girls, Past, Faliures, Sex, Drugs, Parties and monsters.
The Pieces I create I will be on wood so they are connected in the way they are presented. They will be arranged in a collage type way:

I am unsure of the number of pieces I want to create, but it will be more than 1 and less than 250.
