Stefan Dunlop – Rum, Sodomy and the Lash

SHIPS 2011 oil on linen 168 x 366 cm

I’ve always found the painting medium incredibly alluring and visceral, to be something of real beauty and worthy of pursuit, you know… I just love it.  I look at really great paintings and it makes me want to be a part of that thing that painting is.

With each work I try to push it past where I have gone before and towards what I consider to be good painting. Presently this includes thinking less about perfection in the works. This approach is currently working and the messiness is ‘allowing’ me to paint. I’m trying to avoid tightness, perfection and excessive thought within the work.
