Flowers of Romance by Paul Bellingham

£80.00

Another collage. As in “The Usual Suspects” I have again tried to use some unusual elements in making up the figures and especially the faces, ie:- a bunch of flowers, a cake and a facier of a building. The idea came from spending a lot of time in and around St Ann’s well Garden park.
A wonderful and joyous place to spend time, however at night the park can take on a more sinister tone when there is often a lot of youngsters taking drugs and being very loud and sounding aggressive. So the piece was based on this. However I realised months later while looking at the picture one night that it was actually about a brutal beating that I received one night during my active alcoholic life.
It was a tremendous shock to me to have this sudden realisation of what the piece was really all about.

Description

A limited edition print run of 10 by artist Paul Bellingham

“My fascination and love of art grows and intensifies as I continue to make it.”

Paul Bellingham’s work is primarily painting, drawing and collage. He is interested in the process of painting and in the paint itself, describing his process as a partnership between the conscious and the unconscious mind.

Bellingham’s work is partially spontaneous and partially pre-planned. He explains: “sometimes I have a loose or general idea at the beginning of my process, in the hope that this will evolve into something with more credibility. Often the end result is a surprise to me. I am trying not to think too much about outcome.” Experimentation is vital to his work, keeping it alive and dynamic. He aims to be “honest and to remember the code of chance and experiment.”

Bellingham started to paint in 1994, as a self-taught artist, however he has always drawn from the age of 4. He is currently studying for a BA (hons) Fine Art degree at Chichester School of Art, where he is enjoying exploring his practice from an academic perspective.
