Encounter I

Painting entltled "Encounter I"

Encounter I (1997) Acrylic, collage and conte on card, 21cm x 15.4cm

This is a painting that I produced from my experience of using theatre as a visual source. I developed the impressions into small compositions which explored elements of the human condition. Here I also used the text at the bottom right (extracted from a newspaper article on Auden) to inspire the formation of the image. The text refers to the poet’s progress toward understanding the nature of suffering. I worked quickly allowing the image to emerge spontaneously through merging ideas from my preparatory material.
