RCA Day 12, first strokes of paint to canvas.
We're now at day 12 and into the first painting. The idea was to do another in the Fear and Salvation series on large canvas (160cm sq) I had lying around at home. This painting went through many stages of progression until it was eventually destroyed. It's now a blank canvas one again. Our first meeting we were advised to experiment, I took this advice on board.
Through my research into xenotransplantation I had the idea to paint the creation of Chimera, a mythical creature created from both animal and human body parts.
The painting began with image of the Surgeon with the severed wing mid attachment and began to regress to the liberation of the doner before being completely painted out.
