At the risk of receiving negs, plus a ban from silky, i have to say this isn't my cup of tea.
Can you explain what your thought process was? cos to me (just my opinion) it just looks like you made a mess. I'm not sure what the stencil is supposed to be of either?? but looks like the kind of thing you download from stencils for free.com
Anyways. Perhaps you should start 1 thread, and put all your art on there? that way it would all be in one place rathe than loads of threads to look at. Check out the way Phenna posts his work for critique maybe?
Just my 2c.
lets just say i work for the blah blah blah, and i have a licence to blah.

The images in themselfs are arbitrary its only in the context of the other elements of the piece that they gain any relevance. They are meant to convey memories in a language of images. The process it self is entirely about the act of creating the sculpture or painting, and there is absolutly no conceptual element put there by me. Any concept or connection is meant to be made by the viewer. I admit that my photos do not fully represent the art, but i'm working on that.

What I'm really trying to do is create the feeling of layers of information on an urban landscape built up over a long period of time. Each element is something on its own but when all these layers exist together its a whole other aesthetic.
I know you said it in another thread graham but how do you do these again? I think the process is much different from a lot of the typical screen prints a lot are used to on here. Do you have any process shots?

Yeah, its a little different from screen printing for sure. These pieces blurr the line between painting and sculpture. They are all mixed media, most of the paint is latex house paint. The stencels are screened with a heavy gel medium so each screen shows slight variation. This is all encased between layers of resin or epoxy, so the surface can be up to over an inch thick. Its different to see one "live" because you can look "into" the piece. Some of my most recent work deals a lot with found objects. I'll see if I can dig up some process shots.

I think these are really interesting. I agree the earlier ones on the thread are too big to see properly, but the web site is good. They give an impression of something rather than spell it out, sometimes it doesn't matter too much what it means. either it does something for you or not. I think that maybe with quite a lot of the stuff on here that is witty (and well executed) there is not very much depth and so some may become a bit boring over time. I think of (for instance) Basquiat, I have no idea what a lot of his stuff is about, but love it and feel I would never tire of one of his on my wall (!)
