Graham Crowley

With regards to referencing the human form’s relationship to the spatial plane that encompasses it, I have been particularly inspired by the use of tones as seen in landscape artist Graham Crowley. Through applying the use of shadow and perspective over the same single tone of colour, it is in fact the landscape that dictates the spatial relationship within the painting, as opposed to the space that suggests where the viewer ius. Although the same tone of yellow can be seen in the top, center and bottom of the painting, the viewer’s eye enforced to see the areas as seperate objects, creating a foreground, middle and background.

Within my own paintings, I wish to utilise this sense of depth in the portrait by emphasising the use of shadow and forced perspective to create a relationship between the space of the body and ground, whilst also keeping the ambiguity of the scale of the form that was present in the previous series.
