ACRYLIC

h: 91 w: 71 d: 2 (cms).

This is one of a series of paintings which use the text of poems with environmental and cultural themes - this one was 'Ozymandias' by Percy Bysshe Shelley.

They are part of an ongoing series with the working title ‘Words fail me’.

The texts provide the first marks on the canvas before being repeated, erased or distorted during the painting process leaving only a hint of the original meaning.

Visual reference comes from various sources - graffiti, wall inscriptions, junk mail, found objects and textures and in this case an oil drum rusting on a North Uist shore.

I was thinking about the everyday abuse and erosion of language and the fragility of actual material stuff and how meaning is constantly changed and renewed.
