Divergence

A 5ft circular painting with lime coloured paints

What can you say about this little (big) beauty? I’d like to say less is more but there’s so much paint on this I would be lying.
I know I’m biased but it’s freakin’ gorgeous.

Appearances can be deceptive. What may appear to be a relatively simple painting is, in fact, the opposite. A quick glance at the sheer weight of paint and the small, meticulous blending within reveals a different story.

Like with so many recent works I am using a new medium on this one – aluminium powder. It has some very interesting properties and one of them is to matt down gloss paints. I used it in the orange ‘tail’ part (the only way I can think to describe it). This is in stark contrast to the dense paints used elsewhere, and I mean DENSE. I can’t recall ever using so much and in so many layers. I’ve done my best to show this in the images.

These applications have a wonderful curve to them as they rise out from that sublime green that covers the background – a shade that’s somewhere between lime cordial and asparagus. Details abound in this very mature and charismatic painting; woven into every application. Divergence works beautifully from far way as well as up-close; a definition at odds with how the word can be interpreted. I like to simply express it as a meeting of things, brought together to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. It’s not textbook but it suits me just fine.

Personally I think of it as a giant Angel Fish
