For #Five2Watch this week we've selected five artists who paint: Matthew Herring, Angela Smith, Maggie Royle, Iain Andrews and Perdita Sinclair.
Svitzer Castle (Spurn series), 2017
Oil on canvas, 24 x 30cm.
Inside and out, 2018
One of a series of paintings in which I've been intensifying the application of paint. In this work the mass of paint has caused the skin to peel and the contents to escape.
Days I have lost, 2018
Oil, ink, pencil and charcoal on canvas
The painting has the appearance of an expressive, abstract painting, however it comes directly from an attempt to copy an improvised painting on paper and points to the elusive nature of this task.
The Death of St. Anthony
Acrylic and oil on canvas - 60cm x 50cm
Siphonophore in Blue, 2018
An Ecosystem in a brushstroke.
Oil, spray paint and water based on pink linen.
