My approach to painting is very energetic and brave. My techniques include using masking tape, stencilling, broken lines, flat colour, palette knife painting, mark making and the hardest technique – making mistakes. I find making mistakes helps me to discover a new sense of direction with a painting, especially if I feel like I’ve hit a dead end with a particular piece. In recent years I decided I wanted to try painting something new i.e. not architecture based. I painted two self-portraits taken from photos of me with a facial injury. I was very pleased with the results and they made me realise I am not an ‘architectural painter’ but simply a ‘painter’. I then began to explore my style of painting without the context of buildings. I have then started a series of portraits based on photos of victorian people and people from the 1940’s. Since these paintings I have develpoed a strong interest in silver screen actors and other iconic figures from that era. I enjoy the contrast created between the old fashion style of the charecter and my modern and unique style of painting. Even though this is a totally different subject matter from my previous work, the bold juxtopositioning of colours and mediums keeps very much in the style of ‘Tim Fowler’.
