Acrlyic on canvas. 2007/8.
one of the recent series of works based around gym equipment. the work is a personal subject and something which enabled me to explore refelctions in still life. each painting is done with reference to an image, the image is made up of several photographs so i can capture wide angles, distortion and over emphasized bluring and depth. this is the widest spherical panoramic image yet.. the image was made up of around 10 photographs which i stitched together. often this feature of my work goes unnoticed, yet the viewer is left with a strange sence of closeness to certain areas of the composition.
as to the finished product, i battled with the surface right the way through, was a little rough for my liking! learn from the mistakes, make sure things are correct before you begin, or half way through you loose faith.
