I find it hard to explain this painting to myself! This painting is the start of a new series of potentially darker works creating an interesting dialogue with their initial fun and bright appearances. I tend to work in a post-rationalistic way, in that the process is much easier to describe once it’s finished. I’ve always reworked old paintings; turning them upside down, creating layers, being in control of obscuring or revealing certain elements of old paintings in order for compositions to work harmoniously with fresh ideas. I’ve began using my drawings far more in the planning of works which has made the surfaces and composition of these newer works far more slick. I’ve maintained imagery that is idiosyncratic of my work but reinventing it and describing it differently. The bowl becomes womb-like, with the trolls floating/sinking vulnerably, ready to be plucked by the feline on the outside. I feel fuelled by the idea of something appearing beautiful, yet on further inspection, becomes dark, creepy and unexpected.
