Layers, layers, layers...

The series I'm working on at the moment is inspired by the marks which appear on the streets and architecture of the city. Graffiti and tagging, oil spills, dirt and grime leave a stain which lasts a long time, even after cleaning and repainting the image stays and thats what interests me. I try to take these elements and create a painting suggesting these marks and layers. My process involves painting an initial image, folding the canvas, duplicating areas, adding enamel and acrylic then over painting and erasing until I feel I've reached the final stage.

Its a very intuitive, experimental process...
