    ‘Rokeby’ 60x80cm,acrylic on canvas. first of a few planned mirror paintings. the title alludes to the painting by Diego Velasquez. it’s about self awareness/self study. he delineates the contours and features of his body with paint. I was interested in the contrast between what we see versus what he sees. more to come.
    this is on show as part of ‘Bonded’ exhibition at the Leyden Gallery in London until the end of June.

  • hifructosemag:

    Edinburg based artist Sarah Muirhead (covered here) portrays every day people in her mottled, figurative acrylic paintings. The watercolor-like quality of her art lends to her keen observations of the body and skin tones. Muirhead elaborates on her style choice in her artist statement: “The quality of flesh, its contrasting textures and tensions, the density and potential of muscle and the irregularity and dimples in fatty tissue are important in the way I want to describe any given subject. I want the bodies I paint to be a strange mixture of lurid, glistening attraction and true empathic realism avoiding elegant cliches.” She continues her unique exploration of the figure in “Bonded,” which opens today at Leyden Gallery in London.
