Paintings 2011 'Singlets'

Singlet paintings 6 x 4 1/2"
These paintings were inspired by the collage process - instead of cutting out images (to arrange in to collage), areas of interest were isolated by painting around them. The image (object photographed) becomes unrecognisable as scale and location are lost in the painting out process. 
I was interested in combining photographic and painting traditions, hence the snapshot size of the photo and the visible texture of the painted brushwork. The series comprises a dozen colour trials.
