Matt Higgins
Big Star

2019

About

This painting underwent many variations and changes before reaching conclusion. Gritty oil paint and oil stick were applied generously to the surface and closer inspection reveals the history of the built up layers of paint and gestures. The final gesture a star shape is drawn on top in white oil stick. The painting references built up walls and surfaces in urban settings, graffito mark making and abstract expressionist mark making. Written words are buried underneath the painted layers further contributing to experience of seeing graffiti gestures and broken down walls.
