Notes


“The techniques I adopt throughout my work involve washed transparent oil layers into which I erase, wipe, and drag through. In doing so I explore ideas of reconstruction and reinvention from partial deconstructed memory. These reconstructed memories examine the ‘transition’ between the material, the idea, and how we read a new visual order. The images and subjects that I use act as ‘vehicles’ and are sourced not only from my own personal recollections but also from art history, historical and geographical references. I create my works as an ‘act of painting’ which allows me a process of deconstruction and change in physicality. A man made touch with a relevance to hope, human interaction and an imaged experience beyond the rapid visual world around us.” - Will Ayres, 2021

A work of this size by Will Ayres usually sells for £1800
