Every Friday, 1 creative, letting their work speak for itself.
Old Trafford (ink on canvas)
So said Swiss-German artist, Paul Klee, and it is a quote which holds great visual and contextual relevance to my work. Indeed, my artwork is dedicated to analysing the subconscious exploration and emphatic celebration of the city, offering a critical yet liberated view on how we traverse and observe the grand cities and their conurbations. The notion that “a line is a dot that went for a walk” is utterly pertinent; it not only connotes the way in which the medium is applied linearly to the canvas, it is also metaphorically applicable to how it traverses freehandedly around the canvas, much as we may traverse a city.
I consider my art to be a form of cartography. However, rather than attempting accurately to replicate what the city looks like, I seek to convey what the city feels like; amalgamating the dynamic, vivacious, exciting and hostile ambiences of the urban landscape and illustrating them upon the canvas. It is a unique form of cartography, a visual representation of the atmospherically rich urban landscape.
