I am...
A Peasant-Painter
About my artwork
Reconstructing the work of a painter of peasant life, I use handmade historical paints dating from the sixteenth century with period quill brushes and studio-ware. The specific pigments, binding media, and handling properties emphasise colour and luminousity, drawing links between the 16th century genre-painting and 19th century impressionism. The peasants with whom I associate are historical re-enactors who have, in turn, hand-stitched their clothing and reconstructed working practices, striving for the greatest authenticity possible. The identification with, and re-enactment of, the subject is a part of the project as the finished work.
Artists I like
Andrea Zittel, Paul McCarthy, Breughel, Van Gogh
