This WordPress.com site is for my painting.
The building is a shell, seemingly stripped down to four walls and little else. The tonal scheme is inverted, against our expectations, with the house being lighter than the sky. The decorative Virginia creeper remains, and any building work appears half-hearted, if not having ground to a halt. The scaffold, the support for construction, echoes the construction, suggesting a possible metaphor for an often frustrating creative process.
This painting was shortlisted for the 2010/11 Marmite Painting Prize.
