Purple Strippen aka big purple, acrylic, varnish, glass paint, emulsion, foil, spray paint on canvas, 100x100m, 2013
Purple Strippen aka big purple. The purple inks, paints and white aerosols combined with more direct and controlled ripping of the canvas than in More Alike. Underwater scenes form the base layer.
Whilst making these paintings I was singing a fair bit, it's just something I do quite randomly and often. "Rain or Star" formed walking to and fro from the studio to my home, accompanied by autumn leaves. I tried remembering it as part of re-visiting these paintings (five years later) and did catch a bit. I'm uploading it to vimeo as I type. The painting that shares the same name was made a bit later.
