A Summary of September and October- Work

These are the pieces my mentor thinks work the best. She wanted me to reintroduce color. At first I went a little wild, and had this brought to my attention.  Currently I am using three colors and  mixing them to get other tonalities. Using color has been a challenge after working in black and white. I began painting on paper, but am now working larger on linen primed with clear acrylic gel. My infuences come from architecture  building sites, surrounding industrial buildings, and using the paint. I discovered the sculptor Phyllida Barlow who also looks to architecture, but says it doesn't really matter.It is the use of the material that counts! Catrine wants me to pay attention to space and the way the shapes I am using relate to it. I have been working and experimenting alot, but have hit some dead ends.The only solution for that is to keep at it.
