Deadly Delicious – facture

epidemic3

 

The third completed work in the new aluminium Deadly Delicious pictures.  This one is much looser than the earlier works on canvas and paradoxically has a great deal more facture than the canvases despite the flatness of the support.  In part this is down to the processes deployed and the choice of material.  It has got me to thinking that the materiality and ‘objectness’ of painting is an increasing delight in a world where technology is steadily reducing the consumption of images onto the glassy surface of the tablet… I guess that’s why we do it…
