Notes from the Artist "Nonsense Part 2"....
"Canvases can start a few ways. Sometimes it’s specific colours I want to use together, sometimes it’s about the tools I want to use (brushes vs the squeegee) and sometimes it’s just the realisation that I have 37 almost empty pots of colour that need using. This canvas was one of those, a bunch of clashing colours and no direction beyond reclaiming said pots.
Here’s how you can tell whether I love a canvas or not: Does it have 173 photos of all different angles and pieces on my phone? Well then I love it. Does it have 2 blurry and incomplete photos of it on my phone? Well I hated it and couldn’t wait to be done with it. This one started its life in the You Are Not My Favourite pile. I couldn’t wait to roll it up to hide it away until it was time to cut it up. But as happens not infrequently with these unloved canvases, in cutting them up I find new pieces and details that I adore. The bags that came from this canvas are some of my favourite of 2020. Now I look at the blurry photo and wish I had a piece or two to hang on my wall."
