Paint and I work together full-time in Levin.
We cover most surfaces in layers of colour finding that perfect place to stop and move on.
From the days of The Learning Connexion where it was all about scaffold and huge scale to now where it’s the same process, that of searching for that space which intrigues me and where the colours can chat, dance and debate and find their position in place where they can stand in a good place amongst the other colours.
Black and White are the main leaders of this game …each of these two have particular strengths which can kill or create new colour.
The texture of the brush and the paints pigment and fluidity also interests me, when the paint hits the surface how thick or thin or dry or wet all speaks sound and rhythm and all going to plan the result is tuneful!!
Whilst painting the buildings in Taita I had a couple of YouTube clips which may explain more too …they are in the Publicity section of this site.
Every day Paint and I discover more things to do …at the moment we colour lots of fibreglass 3d objects, and when the time is right the view outside beckons for some plein air.
Whatever is going on in this paint world gets expressed as we explore …its a good life!
