Keim Galaxies Launch

Not quite completed, as one or two more to do, but mostly done!

I move out of the office into the Studio Tent in the Spring…  Well, I need to reconstruct the tent because it has suffered with the wind and rain, but should be sorted by April.  In the Summer I tend to paint, and then it’s back to working inside in the Autumn, with more time spent at the computer.

But I am ready to start publishing the Keim Galaxies. I am also playing about with animations, which I very much enjoy.  So that adds another dimension, especially with the music.  It would be nice to be more creative with the music, but I am just using tracks from copyright free sources right now.  I quite fancy getting out my djembe and experimenting with that and the images, but as always, my mind flies off, and I need to keep focused!

I’ve been a fan of Keim Mineral Paints for many years, and over time, my palette has been leaning heavily towards the traditional and classic colours of mineral and earth pigments. So what a delight to work with them in a different way with digital imagery!

The Keim Galaxies range from the subtle and spontaneous, to the bold and highly ordered. I introduced some obviously geometric elements, but while putting them into play, I also aimed to keep a sense of fluidity where possible. I’ve played with contrasts in line, clarity, shape, pattern, scale, and colour, thereby forming an interesting range of imaginative “Galaxies” I hope you’ll enjoy.

These designs are evidence of beauty expressed through an adventurous, creative, process. They are perfect for interiors which embrace the natural mineral and earth colours. Choosing ecologically friendly paints for exterior and interior decoration will help us towards a sustainable future. These designs will perfectly complement any eco-friendly interior setting where traditional paint colours are utilised. Many of these designs will also work to add a contemporary twist in a historic/heritage setting, due to the harmony of the colour palette.

The Keim Galaxies were made possible through the kind donation of un-manipulated digital images of paint buckets from Keim UK, which were used as the starting material for art/designs. PLEASE NOTE; THIS WAS A PROJECT I CARRIED OUT INDEPENDENTLY, IT WAS NOT A COMMISSIONED WORK AND HAS NO FORMAL LINKS WITH KEIM MINERAL PAINTS.

ALL COPYRIGHTS ARE OWNED BY JENNY MEEHAN AND IMAGES ARE LICENSABLE VIA DACS (DESIGNER AND ARTISTS COPYRIGHT SOCIETY – MORE INFORMATION BELOW.

The titles of the Keim Galaxies were created through imaginative ingenuity, and were gathered from many sources, including personal memories, music, dance, and the emotions they illicit when viewed. Spirituality, faith, prayer, and joy in life informs all of my visual art working.

I continue working with the Sol-Silicate paints, loving the colours and everything else about them.  It feels good to use eco-friendly, environmentally-friendly paints with traditional colours in a new and innovative way, bringing quite a contemporary twist to the colours which are often to be found in both the interiors and exteriors of heritage buildings.  As with all my paintings, I do work on them for several years before they get shown, so for now the Keim Galaxies at least provide something to show for the time being!

Because there are rather a lot, I will post up at the end of this post rather than in the middle of it.  I have been working on these for many months, so its interesting to see them as a collection.  The image resolution/quality  on this blog is deliberately low, but doesn’t reflect the quality of the original digital images.

Dwell Time Issue 2

I’m delighted to have been selected for the second “Dwell Time” publication.  This is a great project, and the realisation of a fantastic vision and mission.  I’m delighted to be part of it!

Award winning, not-for-profit arts publication reflecting on mental wellbeing. Produced and curated by Alice Bradshaw, Vanessa Haley & Lenny Szrama in collaboration with Penistone Line Partnership. Founded in 2018. Currently funded by Penistone Line Partnership, ACORP, Northern & CrossCountry.

My contribution:

https://dwelltimepress.wordpress.com/2019/07/31/jenny-meehan-sticky-note-to-my-self/

Which was published online in July 2019, and has been selected for the printed publication.

Here was my own reflection on the work I produced:

 

“This piece is called “Sticky Note to my Self”.  The realities of life are sometimes very hard to bear.  Like printed matter, certain facts stare us in the face, and however hard we try to pull them off, it’s just not possible.  I chose facts about the Penistone line, because of the publication which is part of the Dwell Time project, but this artwork refers to my own significant train journey to London for psychotherapy on a weekly basis for five years.  This sticky note reminds me of my internal journey from one place to another…going in either direction over different units of time.

Thankfully with the right help and support, over the years, the overarching movement is in the direction of health: MOVING and BEING.  I hope this is helpful to you in some way.”

Chaiya Art Awards 2020

Drat. While one of my submitted paintings was long listed, and selected in the  106  when it came to finally curating the exhibition it fell out of the loop!

Got this:

“We want to thank you for submitting your creativity to the Chaiya Art Awards on the theme “GOD is … ” We received over 700 entries in a variety of mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture, glass, textiles, photography and video. The quality of submissions was very high and we have chosen 106 works to be longlisted.

Congratulations on successfully making it onto the longlist with Light Touch”

But that is a far as it went!

So easy to happen, but disappointing because I would have loved to have my work in this exhibition.  Being a person of faith and m spirituality being such a prime focus, having work in this kind of exhibition would have been great.  Blurb from the Chaiya Art Awards website:

“How do 50 artists respond to the phrase God is … ?
From over 700 entries, the 50 artists featured, of all faiths and none, in this curated and juried exhibition, invite us to muse with them their experiences through canvas and paper, photographs and video, cloth and stitch; 3D metalwork and pottery; bronze and stone sculpture alongside an interactive robot.
The panel of five judges, all well respected experts in their arts arena, will choose and announce the winner of the £10,000 along with other prizes on Press night. Visitors will also have their say by voting for the artwork on display during the exhibition for the public prize of £1,000.
This exhibition is an invitation to look beyond, to discern what cannot be seen and grasp what cannot be described.
10% of all artwork sold goes to our Charity partner UNSEEN – working to end human trafficking and modern slavery.
EVENT: CHAIYA ART AWARDS 2020 – Winners Exhibition, Affordable Art Fair
DATES: 10 – 19 April 2020
OPEN: 11am – 6pm every day (till 4pm on last day)
VENUE: Gallery@OXO, Bargehouse Street, London, SE1 9PH
Entrance is free. Artwork for sale, prices from £50 – £12,500″

Well, it’s going to be a great exhibition, so I will certainly enjoy looking at what did make the final selection!

 

It’s Time for Keim!

 

So, as promised, here is the collection so far.  I am going to have to move onto some paintings over the Summer, but I get the feeling that like Keim Paints, this experimenting with the colours in this way may well be almost as addictive as painting with the paints!

Just skip over the blurb about licensing… I need to include it!

Please note; the fee is simply proposed by DACS. I am sometimes, depending on the circumstances, open to negotiation with respect to the fee amount.
In the first instance, contact me me with the image you wish to use.  I will supply the file to you myself, as soon as it is confirmed that the licensing agreement has been put in place.
Note: As said previously; DACS do not supply the digital image itself.  After initially contacting me , you will need to contact DACS with the name of the image, and they will liase with me, administrating  the process quickly and efficiently.
They can  explain how it all works, and help you through the process, answering any questions you have if you are not familiar with it.
If you have a tight budget to work to, remember the proposed fee is sometimes negotiable. I appreciate that image licensing costs can be prohibitive for certain projects, and welcome enquiries for consideration.

For this kind of use:
Distribution: Worldwide all languages

Proposed licensing fee: £270 +vat
This was below the proposed licencing fee initially suggested to the client by DACS, which was (in that year) £382 +vat, but I had a personal interest in the project therefore was happy to reduce the fee accordingly.

Jenny Meehan (Jennifer Meehan) – How to Contact Me

 

Well, that’s it for March!  I need to repair my studio tent now, so I can do some painting!

Not sure what to make of my recent paintings…

Well, how strange.  I knew my return to oil painting after a long stint of acrylics would come up with something different, but I am surprised by these two recent experiments.    I continue with my acrylics in a highly abstracted mode of working, as I like the piecemeal way I can paint them and the huge range of textural possibilities, but there is a quality about using oils which is completely different, and it was great to enjoy the smell of the oil paint once more.

I will sort out better images later when paintings complete and dry.   Just a few little alternations/additions on both are still to come.  I am not sure how I feel about these two at the moment…I like the use of colour but I find the difference in style rather dramatic.  It might be the start of something new… I find them pleasant but a little too tidy…

In the back of my mind Henri Rousseau has been lurking within the undergrowth for a long time so maybe I should not be surprised by the naive style of these two paintings.   Not a patch on his well developed work…

http://www.henrirousseau.org/

How far he took things in his own direction…Always to be admired.

Things come out in the painting process which don’t have to be ultimately decisive.   There is going to be that place (a bit like the beach at Weston super Mare!) where the ground starts to dissolve around your feet.  And you do sink, it’s just a matter of how far you stay in the same place which determines how deep you go.  With that in mind, I won’t be too phased by what has come up, but endeavour to continue with the oil paint without feeling I need any set course ahead.  I can see elements of past oil paintings in these two current ones, and while a bit of a mixed fruit cocktail type affair, I trust they hold something for the other paintings which will follow them.

Each painting took around six hours to paint.  I haven’t painted in such a regulated/continuous manner for a long time and so I recorded the time the painting took for my own reference.  Each painting is 40cmx60cm.    Will look quite nice, and improved too, by frames.   I would prefer the development of a painting to take far longer and be far more fragmented, with more time spent waiting for the paint to dry within painting sessions, but for practical reasons the time span needed to be condensed, and I guess this is a useful exercise in itself.

I feel I like a little more looseness in my painting…

There is a beautiful soft textural vocabulary which completely excites me which I can explore with oils.    I hope that  what I have learnt over the last couple of years with acrylics with respect to surface will find its way into my working with oils.  These two paintings below, exercises more than paintings I think, have been my ground recently for trying to find out what I like and what I want to do.  Maybe I will continue with a few of this type of thing (smaller paintings, approx 30x40cm) for a while to give myself plenty of scope for experimentation. I prefer to work larger, but with limited drying space, small may be best for now.

Really need to knuckle down over the next few months with the oils I think.  But as I have around 30 acrylic paintings currently “on the go” I will be regularly attending to them as well.  It’s much easier to work on them with little bits of time, as for the oils I need longer painting slots.

Paul Nash 

This painting, by one of my favourite painters Paul Nash, for example, is something I feel  comfortable with:

There is an openness in feeling which I identify as being something very desirable.  I adore his use of colour.  I also love his drawings, and subject matter.  Having spent a great deal of time looking at the Dorset countryside over the last few days, it’s with added pleasure to look over some of his work once more.

Over the Summer I have taken a break from my usual frequent gallery visits.  London is very busy over the Summer and it has been so hot, which doesn’t make me feel like walking around London quite so much as I normally do.   I have spent a lot of time in the garden (maybe this informs the above work!) and after putting a lot of time into entering open calls and sending/delivering paintings around the country during the first half of the year, I have decided to spend the Autumn concentrating on painting and drawing, not self promoting and “getting out there”.   Times and seasons.  There are a few opportunities coming up for exhibiting with Kingston Artists Open Studios which I will take part in, but that is it for the time being.

Acrylics with Textures Painting Workshop

I held a one day one-off “Acrylics with Textures” Workshop a few weeks ago which went very well indeed and I received good feedback.   Three people took part (I only have space for 4 max) and I held it in my kitchen studio and garden.  A little bit of rain at the end told me that next time around a little gazebo would be useful to make a little more space available, so that’s on the “to buy” list.   I think I will probably hold another of these “Acrylics with Textures” sessions at some point, as everyone got a huge amount from it, and I find it wonderful to combine my teaching skills with painting/drawing.  Having spent so much time over the last two years with Acrylics, and experimenting so thoroughly with the many different possibilities, I found myself in the position of having plenty to pass on to others, and it’s very exciting to see what people make of what you give to them.  My time is currently very restricted, far too much to think about doing something like the “Acrylics with Textures” on a regular basis, but it was a good experience and one I hope will be repeated at some point.

Here are some images from the “Acrylics with Textures” workshop

Just digitalized two recent paintings “Icy Landscape” and “Tower”.  After “Whatever the Weather”, and enjoying painting with a lesser number of colours, I’ve taken the plunge to paint with just one, and just two, very watered down acrylics, and what a pleasure that was.  Working on the bare canvas with various textures and fillers created an interesting ground for working on top with the dilute acrylics.  These two paintings are almost like notes….There are a few passages I will take special note of, and just having them up on the wall serves as a memory aid and reference point for elements which I may well use again.  Though I have got very much into experimenting with different hues over the year, and in particular, experimented with  varying pigment load in the paint, to work in this delicate way, both with boldness and yet also paying attention to the finer details, and to see depth created in a kind of watercolour way, is very exciting and definately a path to travel on in the future.   Maybe a little return to my work with oils during 2010?  Oh, oils would be a fine thing with more drying space.

Not great to view paintings like this on the net, because of their need for close observation under good light in order to appreciate the tactile qualities, however, must do.  The fragments shown might help.

Starting with the end of my title strand, rather than the beginning,  with notification that my old website www.jennymeehan.co.uk is now no longer operating and instead of www.jennymeehan.co.uk, I have a new site www.jamartlondon.com.   I think the new website www.jamartlondon.com might risk sounding a little pretentious, but my reasoning is rather basic.  I liked the Jam part, because a while back someone nick named me “Jenny Jim Jams” which sounded rather nice and relaxed, and I liked it as a nick name.  Also my initials are JAM and I now sign my work this way.  There were already a couple of websites with jamart in the title, so www.jamartlondon.com, with the location included, seemed a sensible option.   So http://www.jamartlondon it is.   and the com is pretty meaningless, of course, but seems the preferred ending for a website if you can get it.

Though the weather is cold and uninviting,  I find this time of year very good for research and getting around London and the surrounding areas to see what other artists are doing.  The value of looking at other peoples work should never be underestimated.  Artists both past and present work in distinctive ways which only add to inspiration and clarification of where we ourselves are located.  What is more, it brings joy, to see creativity expressed in so many marvellous ways.

When visiting Wimbledon Art Studios I always pop in and see Andrew Fyvie’s  www.andrewfyvie.co.uk      tactile and skilfully constructed sculptural pieces which sit so well next to the collages of Paul G Emmerson, ( no site,  paulgemmerson@tiscali.co.uk)    and artistically strike the same kind of notes, rather like different musicians in an orchestra or something like that.  I like very much Paul Emmerson’s latest work: the longer format works very well, and the panels at the sides are in accord with the general “interiors” feeling…maybe in my mind suggesting movement through one space to another, (rather as moving from one room to another).   I think this may be the thought behind my feeling.   It was very pleasant to actually meet Andrew Fyvie, as I have not done that before, and learn more about how he constructs his work, and about some of the materials he uses.

While this causes a certain amount of conflict within me, (as I do like a bit of 3D form making myself), and now I have a list of a few materials I would like to try out,  it is worth suffering the tension of a pull to three dimensionality, because this is not a bad thing for a painter to feel.  I am aware, for example, that when I visit exhibitions with both paintings and sculpture in them, it is normally the sculpture which leaves the greatest and most profound impression on me.  I think this is because of the tension in space.  Hard to put into words, and I am most probably terrible at it, well, (at least compared to some other very accomplished writers) but I have been thinking about space experience when viewing paintings and space experience when viewing sculpture.  The fact that I have to walk around sculpture is dynamically engaging.  The physical space between elements/parts/features of a sculpture has a presence which is more intimate, more enquiring of me, in terms of emotional response.  It is more blatant. More intrusive. More confrontational.  On the other hand, the space experience in a painting is more of a suggestion.  It is generally more fickle.  There are more whispers?  Sometimes less reliability?  (Light will change the surface of a sculpture however, so alterations come in that way.)  Light on a painting also changes… something I have been experimenting very much with myself recently and most probably the reason for my focus on texture and the different ways I can make light bounce off the surface of the canvas.  This can alter the way space is perceived in a painting too. And this, even without or with very little colour, as I am now exploring, which I will post up soon no doubt.  But I think that because of all the angles that light approaches a sculpture, there is  a  more lasting  and immediate presence.   Plus the contrast between solidity and space.  It is greater.  (I stumble and trip with words, as I alway will do. I will continue to mull, pointlessly, over the matter! )

AM interested in this attraction I have right now.  I like paint too much to do without it.  However, at a recent visit to Poussin Gallery (Bermondsey Street, London SE1 3UW) to see “Douglas Abercrombie: New Paintings and Peter Hide: New Sculpture, it was Peter Hides emotive heavy but fluid steel constructions which caught me in themselves.  Not keen on the smaller pieces…the scale of the larger works fitted better with the work in my opinion, but the way he uses the steel , from the folded “soft” areas, and the harder more angular forms, to the little incisions and the “bites”…the “damaged” areas to the carefully attended to part: this all worked together in a perfect balance of, well, I guess I am back to the structure and flow idea.  I do like steel too, of course.  And having spent a good few pleasurable hours manipulating it myself, I understand (a little) and respect the skill involved in creating these sculptures. That oxidised surface too…like velvet.    See   http://www.poussin-gallery.com/site.php?exhibition=44

Popped  in to see Paul Lemmon http://www.paullemmon.co.uk/   and enjoyed seeing his recent work, which I like very much.  New subject matter…figures by water, sun splashed, and lots of diagonal brushstrokes, (as previously), but something is happening which I am excited to see…lots of the new studies have a greater presence due to less markmaking but strokes placed with the benefit of further years of painting experience, which comes across more strongly and I think even more effectively. Something is moving forward.  This is essential to any artist, progression.  I am very much looking forward to seeing what happens, and one of the reasons I make a point of visiting Wimbledon Art Studios regularly is that I find it very interesting and useful to see different artists work over a span of several years, as the interest lies not only in the products produced but viewing what is happening from a distance.  A distance that is only possible with the passage of time.

Took a look at the work of Vaughn Horsman     http://www.grasshopper3d.com/photo/photo/listForContributor?screenName=34slbq8vl7o4e    who has only been at Wimbledon Art Studios for a few months.  Got very excited about this work.  One, I love wood and this appears to be his main material and two I have for many months been thinking along the lines of what makes a beautiful work of art is a balance between structure (I guess I mean mathematics…in the sense of forms being geometrically based/constructed…((for me as a painter, then we would speak of the grid, I suppose) and illogical, random, flow…organic, free formed, with no underlying determinate.  So, of course, I loved these creations.  How exciting to see!  It is new to me, and encouraging because I really do feel that this is something significant…and to see digital technology in tandem with practical, manual skill has got to be good.  We live in a different age, the whole thing seemed to say to me.  (At the risk of sounding profound!)  I teased him about  the whole thing being  Geeky.  (But that is a positive, in my opinion, if you are creating things like this!) I trust that forgiveness is extended my way!

Spurred on by the wonders of technology, I have taken some time for some geometrical playing around myself, and have come to the unexpected place of rather enjoying flipping various shapes around in Photoshop.  This is, I think, of use to me…just the sheer speed is helpful and it is allowing me to experiment with what may well become some underlying structure/composition to use in later paintings.  I am undecided right now, but have recognised on reviewing my work over 2012 that I do like to have a strong sense of structure in my work, and the paintings I felt would take me forward into the following year are indeed the ones which had plenty to hang the fluid and well, more illusive, marks, gestures and accidents on.  (Nice title for a show that, “Marks, Gestures, and Accidents”…must make a note of that. ) Some of the playing has produced imagery which I will get printed onto paper, and then play about with it that way too, maybe with some cutting and some paper stencils, which I am most fond of.  Some of them I feel have reached their own ending, though it is too tempting with Photoshop to experiment…forever.   Paint is better though.   Here are some of my playful experiments:

It is such a delight to experiment so freely and fluently with composition, and I will continue to develop and play with some of the experiments over the Winter Months.  It is likely that after a few months of working with these I will select some and get them printed out for one of my exhibitions next year.  It’s only by doing that you learn, and being able to work with shapes, the symbolism possible through different combinations, and quickly altering basic colours (while no way as subtle as pigment, for a rough idea, the screen colours are fine)is just great for me right now.   I cannot afford to experiment in this way physically due to time and money/material restrictions, and using Photoshop at least provides some foundational sketches, some of which might well end up being used in paintings, and others which may well stand up on their own two feet as prints.

I’m FREEZING!  Keeping the house warm in one room is fine, but means that walking around the house becomes very daring, as I disturb the air, and wonder if I really can wear gloves indoors?  Why not?  No reason.  Just feels odd.  It is soooooooo tempting to turn up the heating, but just a small thought of rising electricity and gas bills quickly changes my mind. (Quick diversion in discourse!)

 

I was delighted to be informed that “Sorrow for Myself” has been selected as one of the works on show for The Ark 10th Anniversary Autumn/Winter Exhibition at “The Ark Centre” which is located on the ground of the North Hampshire Hospital, just off the Basingstoke ring road, Basingstoke.  If you would like to come along to the Opening Night on Friday 12th October, please contact me at j.meehan@tesco.net.

A bit about The Ark Centre…

In 2002 a new Education Centre, The Ark Centre, was opened on the hospital campus, run by the North Hampshire Medical Education Trust, a registered charity. This works in partnership with the hospital to provide many postgraduate education functions as well as running as an independent conference centre. Other partners in The Ark are the Pelican Cancer Foundation, a charity dedicated to the cure of pelvic & liver cancer by the use of precision surgical techniques, and Southampton University’s nurse training facility. The Ark specialises in high tech conferences, including medical & surgical meetings, providing first rate IT and interactive live case presentation facilities. The Charity also sponsors a large range of community activities, within the Ark itself, sponsoring a range of educational and self-help meetings.

The regular Open Art Exhibitions at The Ark Centre are an exciting feature of what goes on in the building and it’s great to know that so many people will see a good range of visual art, free of charge and hopefully their experiences will be enriching and add something to their life.  (I never assume this will be the case, but one optimistically hope!!!)

I am delighted that the work was accepted and I have been blessed recently with two paintings chosen for Open Art Exhibitions in just a very short period of time, something which is very pleasing indeed.  So soon, one painting in Basingstoke and another in Rickmansworth.  I plan to go back to Rickmansworth, as it is a lovely area, with some beautiful nature reserves, and if the painting “Whatever the Weather” doesn’t sell, I will have a good reason to return!  (However, I would ideally like it to sell, of course.)  If you are in Rickmansworth, then take a look at the Artistsmeet Open Exhibition 2012 at Watersmeet, which runs from 6th September until 31st October 2012. (Artistsmeet, Watersmeet, High Street, Rickmansworth WD3 1EH)  Disappointingly I cannot make the launch event, which I am sad about, because I love socialising (and it’s not that far away), but circumstances prevent me from attending this event. This years open exhibition will display the work of 22 artists from both the UK and abroad and includes painting, ceramics, textiles and photography.  Original artworks are all for sale. The exhibition will run from Thursday 6th September until Wednesday 31st October 2012.

Looking forward to seeing the next exhibition of drawings and prints at the British Museum “Renaissance to Goya – Prints and Drawings from Spain”. This free exhibition brings together for the first time prints and drawings by mainly Spanish and important European artists working in Spain from the mid-16th to the first decades of the 19th century, some of which haven’t been on display before. The show includes works by Diego Velázquez, Vicente Carducho, Alonso Cano, Bartolomé Murillo, Francisco de Zubarán, José de Ribera and Francisco de Goya. See:  http://www.britishmuseum.org/whats_on/exhibitions/renaissance_to_goya.aspx?utm_source=enewsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Sep2012&spMailingID=39666920&spUserID=MTY0ODIwNDUzOTgS1&spJobID=156851801&spReportId=MTU2ODUxODAxS0

Though I am drawing very little myself right now, I relish the opportunity to see such fine examples.  I can’t wait.  I love drawing, and have resolved to carry a sketch book around with me more, so that I will be inclined to use my pencil more.  I do believe that even if I mostly paint paintings without much drawing in them, that the discipline of drawing is essential to any painter and I don’t intend to neglect it.  I have also booked myself on an intensive life drawing class at West Dean next year.  I cannot really afford it, but with vouchers for Christmas and Birthday, it makes it more accessible.  It is just a short course, so it doesn’t work out too badly.

Just recently hung the latest exhibition in the Alliance Healthcare IT department in Chessington, Surrey.  Thanks to the “Work with Art” initiative people working in IT at Alliance Healthcare now have 13 of my recent paintings to hopefully enjoy.  I say “hopefully” because I am aware that they will have to look at them for three months!  It is not like a gallery, where if you don’t like something you can just walk by and not look at it again.  I think the paintings have beauty, though there is one of them I am not so fond of now, and will change at a later date.  It is not developed sufficiently.  They are a rather eclectic mix.  Here’s the blurb for them:

“This painting exhibition in Surrey will show some of my most recent work. It consists of many examples of process based paintings which stem from my imagination. This is a body of work I consider as a kind of “seed bed” for future strands of painting in that I have quite deliberately kept it as organic in conception as possible, drawing on my own subconscious in an attempt to locate some of my most central concerns, emotions, and thinking. I then plan to work into this foundation with future paintings which I envisage becoming more of a mixture of both my subjective inner vision and external subject matter of a more clearly definable and recognisable nature.

At the current time though, I want primarily to experiment with the materials I use and discover new ways of manipulating them unrestricted by the specific demands of creating a “realistic” representation of anything in particular. However, I do find that as the paintings develop, I often discover an image appearing which seems true to the work which has preceeded it. So subject matter develops, and this you see reflected in the titles of many of the paintings. While this exhibition contains an eclectic assortment of paintings which signal several different future directions in painting, I see this diversity as fundamental to developing a painting practice which is able to develop in an visually intelligent, interesting and original way. Someone once said to me that “No painter is self-taught” and I understand the truth of this. I find myself constantly drawing from paintings by painters who employ very different styles and approaches to their work, both past and present, and I find their thoughts, lives and experiences offer me priceless insights which helps to establish my own direction.”

and here are some images.

I LIKE what this painter, Ed Moses has to say!  Especially the bit about the “romance” of painting, and about not liking the word “art”.   While I am, of course, very jealous of his studio set up, (Ed Moses has plenty of room, and plenty of assistants!) I am always encouraged when I read interviews like this, where my own core feelings and beliefs about painting are proclaimed from somewhere else.  It makes you feel one of the crowd, rather than a lone voice.  I will take a better look at Ed Moses’ paintings over the next few weeks.  My favourite part of the interview:  “I don’t like the terms art or artist. I like the idea of doing what I do in terms of exploration. The roots of that may go back to the earliest man, where he made markings in response to his existence when he saw a mirror image of himself in water, or a footprint in mud, or a blood print with his hand on a wall. So what were these guys doing this for? They were responding to the environment they existed in through paint or marking or scraping or scratching.”

And, in bold: “People are more interested in ideas than the romance of painting.”  

Another wonderful read which glows rather well with me is the following by Mark Stone:

“And in the end it can no longer be about the context of things, but the vision of things. How we see things is the most important place to start. There are many of us who are fed up with the ongoing Postmodernist dialog. We want something more visually stimulating, thoughtful and resonant. We want to use our eyes informed by our technologies instead of relying on the technologies to dictate to our eyes. We are all visual hybrids at this point. We work both online through the lens-based programs and in the flesh and blood world. We are “colored” by those distinct experiences. We do not see in the open world as an Impressionist did. We focus on specifics, isolate details, scan for patterns and then suddenly if we move beyond the program, we are able to comprehend a larger picture, fall into older ways of linear seeing, a to b to c, rather than being stuck in the loop from zero to one, one to zero. When we paint we should work through the lens to our own physical structures of vision, not the other way around. We should abstract from the world around us rather than world presented to us. For me there’s no going back to Modernist pretensions, no insider refinements of period pieces, no pleasing designs for fashionably retro collecting clientele. To see in a new way, outside the Postmodern imperatives, we must, each of us, devise a different engagement with how we understand our lives through our vision. Yes, we may be very, very late, but we are also very, very early.”

Austin/Desmond Fine Art

A few weeks back I  visited the Francis Davison: Collages 1976 – 1983 exhibition at Austin/Desmond Fine Art.

Some of the small studies had something to teach me, and I found myself wishing that my experiments sold at a couple of thousand pounds, but as I am not Francis Davison, it might be worth settling for a little less in the way of financial benefit.    The larger work on show revealed the fruit of many hours experimentation, and it was a rich experience to view the work.  “Orange Arc and Spot in Turquoise & Brown”  “Egypt” “Blass Mass, Blue Angle, White Background”  “Disintergrating Black, Green, Blue Fields”  “Sand Ground with Black,Red,White and Green”.  Say it how it is.  Titles to the point.  I was good, I am glad I made the effort to see this exhibition.

What most struck me was how much like paint the way Francis Davison uses some of the paper.  I was convinced that some of the paper was paint, until I took a closer look.  This is interesting to me because I have thought about using collage in my own paintings and I have been put off mostly because of not mixing the paint with the paper, but  what I saw done here was inspiring.  Not a drop of paint in sight, but very, very painterly collage.  And the contrast between the dissolved type edges with those of jagged cut paper, which spoke sharper than sharp, was delightful.

My words don’t articulate visual things well, but all I can say is if you give this kind of work the time it deserves, then it will teach you a lot.  As I looked at the work I looked for the decision-making process, I looked for the junctures and the points at which I might agree or disagree with decisions made.  This navigational process of working my way through any visual expression has become much more obvious to me recently, so much so that the lack of overt subject matter worries me less and less.  To see an exhibition like this at this particular time, when I am experimenting in a very free manner has proved very fruitful.  I find that I need to remind myself of restraint with colour and never forget the importance of edges, as well as the effect of different sized masses and some of the interesting relationships which can be so easily overlooked.

In Alon Zakaim Fine Art,    http://www.alonzakaim.com    I found three paintings which I certainly will be paying attention to.  The first which took my eye was “Le Bal (1976) Acrylic on canvas by Charles Lapicque.  This reminds me again of the beauty of boldness with colour.   The painting by Claude Venard “Le Phare” is a new discovery for me, as I have not come across this painter before, and I like, like, like!  I am experiencing a tension inside myself right now, with respect to painting completely non objective paintings and yet also feeling the pull of a recognisable image, and this painting is very satisfying to see, because it holds both so well together.  I think it holds an answer to one of the problems I have been tossing around in my head for a while. It’s funny how sometimes you just need to see something for a problem to be resolved. I have spent a little time looking at the  Alon Zakaim website, and the page with an exhibition on Claude Venard included a painting “Composition” painted in 1970 and I practically had kittens looking at this one.  I am so excited to find some painting like this.  It is like looking at the ground in front of me, and seeing, that though I thought I was travelling an unknown path, there is someone before me who has trodden the same path, and has left the grass and foliage pushed back a little which makes my journey a little easier.  I have never felt I was doing anything “new” because I don’t think there is anything “new” under the sun, (as it says in Ecclesiastes,) however, it is very helpful to see another painter grappling with the same issues as I am, and it is heartening too, because I unfortunately do not have the level of critical input into my work as maybe some people participating in a Fine Art Painting degree or similar might receive.  I value the lessons learnt  by those who have walked before me.  There is no need to do a degree, masters, or whatever, if you can attend to the work of others and learn from that.  You don’t need to put into words what the marks of a paintbrush put onto the canvas. But you do need to ask what is happening here? And what does this mean TO ME.

I am so in love with “Trees with Sacre Coeur in the Distance” by Claude Venard that I have printed out a small print which I now carry  around in my purse so I can look at it whenever I want to.  It gives me a tangible lift of heart, and so why not?

Here is some of my own painting, IN PROGRESS,  I must say.  And progress is a little slow right now, as having started around 20 paintings I now find myself at the most demanding stage with all of them at the same time.  I have started to stick little pieces of masking tape on the parts which I am thinking about, because otherwise I forget what I was thinking.  If I can locate easily the areas which I am concerned with, it is much easier to come into the painting after a period of a few days away from it, and I find that with so many other things demanding my attention, this helps a lot.

These examples are not necessarily shown the correct way up,  (or in the right order!) but I am now wanting to spend less time fiddling around with digital images.  Some have masking tape on them right now and many have subsequently changed direction quite significantly.  Other I reckon are nearly finished but I am not rushing anything and want time to think them through. The images are only here to give a little idea of what I working on right now.

iridescent medium in acrylic paint example jenny meehan

Here I am, using acrylics most of the time, mainly because of the quick drying and the limitations on space.  They are OK.  But I’m missing my oil paint.  I am also missing using the silicate mineral paint I love so much. Eco friendly, beautifully light reflective and velvety matt.  I miss that paint I spent months last year getting to know and learning to love.   Yes, it has its restrictions, but I am keen to start some more work with it, on limestone I think, this year.  The Keim Soldalit, (third generation silicate, with more applications possible due to product development)  (which I have plenty of), is great on primed rigid hard board, and I have to confess to having quite a few paintings started and on temporary hold, due to this recent set of work in acrylic.

The reason for using the acrylics is that I want the paintings (which are destined for display from September at Allied Healthcare, Chessington) on canvas, and the Soldalit needs a hard substrate, as does any mineral paint, because it doesn’t have the plasticity of acrylic.  Never mind.  What I have carried over from that work last year is a preference for certain colours, the most permanent and enduring pigments  have won me over any dye based types, and it is kind of lovely to have realised where my attractions lie colour wise.  The earths and the metal based colours have gotten right into my being; I spent so much time mixing large amounts last year for the mural, that I cannot get them out of my system. I am not consciously excluding particular colours, but I think I have got to know some of the most essential ones quite well, and lean on them, like old friends.

Because I will have rather a lot of paintings for this Allied Healthcare exhibition, (the space is big), I won’t be able to afford to frame them all.  Even with the very economical frames from Great Art, which I quite like,  it’s going to cost money I don’t have, so I am planning to use stripwood to make surrounds for the canvas’.  I think this will be a good option, even if I could afford to buy frames for all the paintings, because there are some paintings which, as they develop, I can see quite clearly require a very defined but very thin surround, not a chunkier surround, and the strip wood is just the job.   I was initially thinking that I might display the work unframed, but I require a clear division to be made, and using strip wood is the quickest, cheapest, and best way of doing this.  I understand that it is possible  to use black fabric tape also, in order to create neat black edges on the canvas, and that sounds like something worth trying out too.  But I do want a visible line from the front, and Wickes sell both pine and hardwood strip wood, 6x18x2400mm, which will be easily attached to the edges of the canvas with veneer pins.  I guess these would also be easily removable, without damaging the stretchers, in case I need to frame the work “properly” later on.

This sunny weather is proving excellent for the type of work I am doing right now.  It’s  great having paintings drying so quickly in the garden, and the fresh air and sunlight do their job well.  As I work my way through the paintings I have started, they begin to develop their own individual courses, and the last part of the painting, say, around the last twenty percent of the process, is the hardest.  I don’t enjoy the cerebral part of the painting process as much as the beginning, which is founded on instincts more than any articulated thoughts.  But towards the end, it is necessary to work out what has been going on, or at least to have some much firmer idea of the direction I have been going in.  What starts as a happy meander, needs to find a clearer sense of direction towards the end of the painting, otherwise it is impossible not to get completely lost in all the possibilities, and this is too disheartening.  At this point the critical eye, both mine and that of others, is brought into play.  Other people’s responses often help me a lot; negative or positive, it matters not.  In the end, I feel I am just here to learn.

A pre-defined picture image is much simpler!  But it is so exciting, this experimentation. I am learning a lot of things as I try to find ways through the difficulties I encounter.  Nothing radical, but it just helps to know what could open up the continuation of a painting which seems to have shut down.  Things like using masking tape to suggest divisions while I think about if I want to go down that route…So easy to pull it off, no damage done. When I need to move into oils.  With some paintings, acrylic just proves not to be flexible enough towards the end stages.  I need to be able to apply the paint and wipe it off if I change my mind or I want to lessen the impact.  It can be done with acrylics, of course, but because I know the paint will dry so quickly, it puts too much pressure on me to “get it right” which is the last thing I want to feel when I am working in this experimental way.

I am also increasingly aware of the need to view the painting at a very distant distance.  It has always been important, but I’m walking right to the back of the garden and viewing the painting indoors, in dimmer light.  It helps.  Also viewing the painting under spotlights (particularly helpful if the surface texture is a matter which needs assessing) and generally spending longer looking, across a longer period of time.  I am not sure all this effort with respect to the decision-making process is going to be clear to anyone else but me, but I have to work in the way I feel is right, and if it means this, then that is what it means.

Here are some more small sections of the paintings recently completed.  Once I get the time I will post images of the whole paintings up, but I haven’t quite gotten around to that yet!
