Untitled (Large Flowers), 2018, synthetic polymer paint on raw, roughly torn canvas, eyelets. 107 x 143 cm.

Here’s something I’ve made this week; I’ve been trying to find a use for photographs I take on my phone and never do anything with. I use a photo editor to create a halftone version of the image, which then gets traced as a vector image in Inkscape and sent to the vinyl cutter to make a stencil. After painstakingly weeding all the tiny dots (by hand) the stencil is applied to the raw canvas and paint passed through the holes. The resulting artefact sits somewhere between a painting and photograph – maybe neither. Hard to say. Not keen on the idea of stretching it, two simple steel eyelets are placed in the top corners allowing it to drape over the wall.
