More Alike I, II, III, mixed media on canvas, 3 60x60cm paintings (and installation art), 2013
The quote "We are more alike than unlike" (Maya Angelou), was used as a title for this painting trio made in spring 2013, Bermondsey, London. The works have a multitude of coloured layers beneath sealed and then hacked into surfaces of black, red and white.
In the above photograph they form part of The Birthday Projects, 2013, London event, which shared preparatory work for 'Red Line', installation made the following week.
Prior to the surfaces being damaged, this was quite a polished, conceptual piece of work that sat smugly in tact for a couple of weeks. After the hacking / action painting I found it more interesting and authentic.
