尼爾‧道格拉斯 Neil Douglas 英國 b.1978
In my current body of work I am developing a process that challenges and enhances my visual perception and interpretation of reality.
I am looking at the influence of photography and film in my painting, placing a greater emphasis on sketching and observations from life. Using my earlier works as the starting point of my research, I am leaving behind aspects of hyper-realistic representation, whilst maintaining its disciplines, with the aim of finding a fresh stylistic language capable of incorporating modern technologies without relying on them. I apply a variety of materials such as plaster and clay to build up different areas of texture. In doing this I can explore the way colour reacts to the surface, how the grain of the medium alters the mark making process, to create different degrees of realism.
