When I have to give my quick description of my work to someone new, I say: " I make art based on personal narrative, mainly of being the son of a soldier in an English mining town."
Sometimes that work is directly narrative, but sometimes the images take me in a more abstract direction. Today I went back to some works on paper that I did at the end of last year, and tried matching them with some poured acrylic shapes that I also made at the same time:
Of the three, I think I like the first arrangement best. But I'll wait until I return to the studio, after sleeping on it, before I glue the dried acrylic shape down on the paper.
