Craig Martin Art Series

I love illustrating a series of images. So often painting more than one image of a concept will birth many more pictures that wouldn’t have come to light had I stopped at just one. Titles for a series are the biggest motivator for everything that follows. When Clowns Dream is a great example. What does a clown dream about? It brings a flood of images. Space Travel. Awesome Places to Play Piano. Its never ending.

Forest Light

Petite Travaux – Small painting exhibition – Retrospect Galleries 2011

Retrospect Galleries has a yearly exhibit Petit Travaux which is where a bunch of artist each paint a 9 image series where all paintings are to be contained in a 25X25cm frame. There will be a room with literally hundreds of 25X25cm pickies available for those looking an original Xmas pressie. This year I went with the theme of Forest Light.

The exhibition is at the Byron Bay Retrospect from the 2nd til the 21st of December 2011.

Space Travel

Petite Travaux – Small painting exhibition – Retrospect Galleries 2010

Petite Travaux is this fantastic show Retrospect do before xmas that has a bunch of artists paint 25X25cm paintings marketed as a special present to buy someone for xmas. Its a treat getting invited to these as we get to pick our own theme.

I think we all have a fascination with space. We sometimes forget we’re surrounded by it, this never ending (?) universe of stars and planets. Every single cell in our bodies has come from it, the universe I mean, but we often feel separate from it. These pictures are about putting us back out there, where we came from.
