Back to School, Back to Work, 2 New pairs of Paintings
Each painting's resolution seems to inform the next painting's decision process. The interplay of formalism and expression provide the friction that makes these works interesting to me.

New home, New window
My new home for this year in the MFA, the JD Kelly building.
One of the bonuses of being in this building, is it is at the top of Garnet Hill, the tallest point in Glasgow. It also houses the printmaking department, making something in silkscreen ultra convenient!
My new studio window. I keep getting these great windows with a view.
I think their trying to set me up for distraction. It is nice to have, and I like that
it's a smaller slice of the wall, keeping more focus on the work.

Perspective: GSA Style
At the top of the Macintosh, there lies spaces designed to study the landscape. These cubies with arches have large windows to study from a bird's perspective what lies beneath, outward and upward.
Our vision is obstructed to the variable of construction scaffolding that is temporarily in place on the building's exterior. The Windows were made using the small square panes that are useful for perspective, to relate the grid of the window to the grid of your drawing.
Meanwhile we look through the imposed structure to what lies out there.
The light changes, a temporal constant, like the changing city beneath.
Not unlike the temporal structure imposed on our view, a purposeful layering of the complexity of the landscape, upholding, protecting, imposing changing thing.

Ta Da! New Year, New Studio, New Work. Ta Da!
What have you been waiting for, my new friends? I made you over the summer its time to shine a bit of light onto your existence. My time of my hibernation is over, and there comes a time to be more open, now that our presentations are done with and my 2nd year is now started. I am exited about what will happen this year with my work, and this is one way of me showing it. I will expand upon my process concerning the work in these spaces along with recording random Scottishness as per usual. I am happy that I have made discoveries in technique and content and managed to keep my underling structure consistent in this new work.
