Chambers Road is an abstracted, paired back still life which feels like a contemporary take on the modernism.
Chambers Road was made this year while studying on the MA Painting programme at the Royal College of Art. Typically I start paintings working from a photograph, from which trace down an initial sketch on canvas. From there the photograph is put away and slowly each limb, each shape, or section of colour is laid down and scraped away, added onto, covered over, erased again, until something sits right and speaks to the other parts around it. Like a puzzle, slowly revealing itself."
