i talk quite a lot with Orrin about her work and she helped me with the set up of my talk week work.
broken crosshatch form > talks about mark making
conversation between the two paintings> one is a response to the other
framing within a frame
raked lines- additive rather than subtract
personal interest in markmaking – methodical mark making
tension in the line> bumping and grabbing
line etching broken down. ? changing direction of the lines> frantic nature of the line
materiality completely different needs to be a closer response to the works ( i personally don’t think this)
“will it make sense by itself”- Toby Raine
take the works apart in isolation > is the work strong enough to stand by itself?
smaller work is Orrins new direction ?
no set goal to the final image ? more successful !
Orrin’s energy shows throughout her work~
How do you come to the final image ?
colour conversation, colour response, colour restriction are all themes in Orrins work
the boarder + or – lighter pink framed by the green ? ( i was on to something but forgot)
green is a response to the pink.
earlier work block colour field large scale = “natural form”
utterly different painting smaller pink obtrusive semi veiled painting more interesting without pink line.
