Car Park Project

Car Park Project

This Project began as a collaboration between myself and some friends. The final product was less about the way in which our work merged together and more about how it didn’t. We spread ourselves out around a Car park after paying for and displaying our tickets, then got on with our respective ideas independently of one another and within our parking space.

For me this was an excellent opportunity to refresh my work as I had become stuck painting portrait after portrait. As I explained in my animation blog, I created many of my portraits as a reaction to my grief which became quite a ritualistic process. I felt the need to paint my aunt and my sister and felt a release when doing so, however following the completion of each portrait this feeling of release and relief disappeared and I had to begin one again.
