Against the Gray Wall

I've been working on some new paintings for a show at The Cold Store in Norwich, England coming up in a few months.  Here are a few.  The individual paintings don't have names yet but the title for the group is Against the gray wall. 

It was a little tough getting started since the pieces had to be small (for shipping purposes) and I've been mostly working on much larger paintings lately.  After a while though the scale allowed me to loosen up and experiment a bit.  Yesterday the paintings took on a slightly new approach and aesthetic, using more paint, broader strokes and less detail. It's not perfect yet but I'm excited about the direction, it leaves more room for interpretation and discovery.
