NEW from The Toys Series -

digitally manipulated tempera-on-paper painting by Mick Mather
As I make progress with these childlike paintings I find myself growing steadily happier with the project. It's very close to taking control, just as The TV Dinner Series of monotypes did in the not so distant past. I suppose that one of the things I like about them is the quick-study and iconic nature of the subject matter and the fact that they can be splashed down without guilt, again, as a child might do. The real work comes after they're scanned and the digital manipulation, filtering and layering begins. In any event, forgive me if I'm repeating myself here, I have a vision of matting and framing each painting alongside the digital transformation. That could be trouble but we'll see.
