Blood is Thicker Than Oil

Painting, oil on canvas, board, brass

My body of work explores the father and son relationship harmoniously with how oil paint is applied to the surface. Thick and sometimes broken brushstrokes are used not only to communicate the subject but to also celebrate my chosen medium. I have further created rhythm as I experimented with different surfaces, some working with the oils whilst others proving more absorbent and time consuming. I believe this can also be said metaphorically of the spiritual bond a father shares with his son, and this bond, in most cases, can only strengthen and become more definitive with time.
