A Recap of the Painting-A-Day Project


All paintings are oil paint on acrylic and gesso Primed MDF Panel, 25cm x 25cm

-----------------

A Year Long 2013 Project?

Hmm, contemplating a possible year long project for 2013. I've been pondering doing a 'painting-a-day' project for a while now. Seeing how my 25cm squares are currently working out well and that I've sped up my process using acrylic for the under painting I'm thinking this is do-able. It will be a project that starts on the 1st of January all the way through to the end. There will be days missed and I'm sure I will lag a few times

what will be my aims?
1)To complete and record a large body of work and hopefully keep you folks interested along the way.
2)This will help me refine my technique and brush-mark.
3)It will keep me pinned down to one style of work.
4) There will be no need to focus on conceptualising as can just watch and see what the results are as they arise and watch any groupings or themes as they come about - that'll be fun

I like the idea of seeing a large collage of disparate images at the end of this time. Obviously the odd one or 2 will be sold along the way.

A 'Sort Of' Declaration / Manifesto for My Work


Things are important.

Things? Ephemeral moments, glimpses that catch your gaze. Mundane spaces, moments and actions that hold your attention and seem to freeze time.

I am interested in serendipity –“happy accidents” and the emotions that come about from noticing them. Familiar examples might be a water droplet dribbling down the side of a glass,
a speck of dust in a shaft of sunlight or a magnificent sunset over the brow of a hill.

It is not a case of something being beautiful or filled with huge meaning, sometimes I will respond to something without truthfully knowing why. For some reason, at one moment of time, a thing has importance.

This may suggest photography as being a way to go, but I want to reconstruct the moment that‘s passed. I want to pay homage to it, actively deconstruct it, then reconstruct it, add myself to the mix as after all I am the person that had the moment and am choosing to portray it. Some of the photos I take, if enlarged, would become seriously uninteresting but by the action of painting, having made an image out of many marks, it gains a vibrancy, a texture, which is substantially different to a photograph even if the initial impression of my work is photographic

As a painter I am unable to capture these moments immediately and photography can miss them or lose the emotional connection as it records the event. I use my camera as a sketchbook, to test , record and then expand on.

I’m not aiming to glamorise the mundane, but searching to find interest in the things around us that we usually ignore. There are fascinating things, often unobserved around each of us. I’m interested in those things that we miss, that we tend to use 'entertainment' to distract us from. I’m fascinated by the world around me not in an engaging way, but as an observer. I love watching the world go by. I am a voyeur.

Getting Behind

OK, getting seriously behind finishing all my painting-a-day work (it's all getting painted but am having trouble getting em all finished on time as some are taking a looong time to do, which then hinders the ones that follow). So tomorrow will be starting a fresh, with the previous ones that are still being painted presented once finished (there's currently 6 on the go :( )

no 37, 39-43

*sob* I always knew it was going to be hard and that it would be a huge test ... do bare with me and do keep liking them when you see them

also I have also realised today that i've not been getting my images on display here on this blog...you can also see more on my Facebook page (you do not have to be a member of Facebook to see the page http://www.facebook.com/artbyandyonline
