I’ve called this painting Loopholes because that is one of the names given to the arrow slits that you see in ancient castle walls - and that is (to a certain extent) what I see when I look at this painting.
Quite often I create paintings with no idea what I will call them, until they are finished. This was one of those. Other times I already know from the outset what I want to call them - some names come easier than others! I even have a list of what I call ‘orphan names’ that are waiting for the appropriate painting to attach themselves to.
It’s difficult to pick up in a photograph, but the background on this one is ‘smudgy’, and there are pale areas, like shafts of light, coming off the white rectangles (which I personally view as protrusions). . . . you can view it all however you want to!
This is painted on a custom stretched canvas, with an Ash frame.
More images to come.
