Green Fold, Poster paint, ink, and acrylic paint on cotton rag paper 75x55cm, 2012
Green fold was made towards the end of the first phase of 'Swimming & Other Things' project.
In 2011 I was involved in work with a University, after which I reclaimed my art practice in the studio. This was also the first time I let myself really paint behind closed doors in a decade, having been mainly involved in outdoor painting projects, social art and public space works - organised and guerrilla. The series began on cotton rag paper, with a mix of childrens' paints and other institutional whilst decadent materials that I felt reflected parts of human nature I was interested in at the time.
The painting remains underwater, in the suped-up natural world.
This was made in the Old Police Station, Deptford, London, 2012.
