'Larmes (Rainbow)' - Spot Painting, Test Print Proof #1 of 1
Surreal Pop Stylised Digital Fizzy Pop Spot Painting - Made from digitally hand-painted spots. New Media - Seurat and Signac inspired Pop Pointillism Painting with a nod to the spot paintings from Damien Hirst's Studio. All the spots are perfectly symmetrical circles, offset to give the impression of different shapes, textures and surfaces.
This particular artwork is a test print for a new more abstracted and simplified series of flat colour monoprints called 'Larmes' (Rainbows), produced on a series of seven rainbow coloured backgrounds.
I like to push the boundaries between figuartive and abstract, each spot and dot has been carefully chosen to give the viewer the option of seeing both forms. The colours have been chosen to be both uplifting and playful, playing with the idea of space with each colour giving a different sense of depth, whilst the tears evoke sadness and an underlying sense of melancholy. Colour and form with a Pop Art sensibility. Please see the close-up images for a better idea of the detail.
Part of on earlier series 'Tears in Heaven' has been included in the Saatchi Art Collection 'Inspired by Man Ray' - August, 2015
Inspired by the Photograph 'Larmes' (Tears) by Surrealist Artist and Photographer Man Ray (1890-1976)
Like the emotive expression of a silent screen star in a film still, the woman's plaintive upward glance and mascara-encrusted lashes seem intended to invoke wonder at the cause of her distress. The face, however, belongs not to a real woman but to a fashion mannequin who cries tears of glistening, round glass beads; the effect is to aestheticize the sentiment her tears would normally express. Man Ray made this photograph in Paris around the time of his breakup with his lover Lee Miller, and the woman's false tears may relate to that event in the artist's life. (J Paul Getty Museum)

I have recently been experimenting with new digital media and painting. The painting is hand painted with a digital brush which can achieve effects impossible by traditional means. I am calling this my 'Fizzy POP' series. This particular artwork uses a hand painted brush 'loaded' with paint spots where the parameters (chosen by the artist) are altered to create different splatter effects. All the spots are perfectly symmetrical but are painted in such a way as to give the impression of depth or perspective. This particular print is a test and the first for a series of more abstracted expressionistic artworks.
Large artwork will be dispatched rolled in a secure tube.
