Bad Hair Day is one of my personal favourites, it’s bold and brash, almost dishevelled in appearance but has an attitude of respect that cannot be ignored. It represents abstract art in its rarest form where texture and colour are the only things that matter. You may have the occasional bad hair day in your life but as long as you’re happy and know you haven’t got to be perfect all the time just to please others then life’s good – just be yourself.
Created by dragging paint along the canvas in multi directional movements using my old credit cards! I love how colours overlap and mix then disappear and re-appear with each glide of the plastic! It’s a matter of self control and knowing your limits with the paint to avoid over working areas and creating sludgey shades in the process. It is a similar process used my the artist Gerhard Richter who is my personal favourite and an inspiration. He doesn’t use a credit card to produce his work mind you!
