These are the paintings that I wanted to know more about and which could easily influence my own work.
Victoria Morton - Tuned for sport 2011.
I like the structure within the chaos - perhaps that is what she feels about the grace in sport sometimes found amongst all of the speed and energy of the competitors.
Joe Bradley - Horse thief 2011.
Neil Gall - Divisibility ( Indefinite) 2011
Initially appear to be a photographic image, that has been damaged in some way. It is actually oil on linen, painted with real skill and control.
Nina Beier - Portrait mode
Made out of found garments this is surprisingly effective.
Gerhard Richter - Line painting plus random model
Apparently he finished this just 2 weeks ago and we were just pipped at the post as it sold yesterday for £1.5m.
Tatiana Trouve - Untitled
One of a series combined with some pieces of related sculpture.
Mark Bradford - Untitled
Mixed media on collage - The texture and finish of this painting is close to where I want to go with my current project on traces we leave in our lives.
