I’ve been doodling on the iPad, inspired by some Edvard Munch landscapes that I’ll post up in a moment. Nothing really looked right though till I passed my sketch through the Instagram app.

By painting colors and lines and forms seen in quickened mood I was seeking to make this mood vibrate as a phonograph does. This was the origin of the paintings in The Frieze of Life.

Not an emulated brush

“Cool Channels”

This brush stroke, there are a few apps that do it, is wonderfully sketchy, not at all computery, and like nothing in rl. That’s what fascinates me with it. Note Nothing like it in real life, you can’t buy a paint brush to do this, it is not an emulation. The apps it comes with are primitive, but that is ok.

The earlier unnamed black images were surprisingly unconsciously reflective of the Christchurch earthquake, it seems obvious now. This simple doodle with paint, completed in the week after the earthquake, equally unconsciously, in retrospect, is exactly what post earthquake tiredness and malaise was like for me. I heard many people say they were tired, and felt like zombies, even, especially if there was no major damage or fear.

Untitled #1

Untitled, but part of a series done at the time of the Christchurch September 2010 earthquake. This first one however was done a week or so before the quake. Maybe that is obvious too.

Shades of Night

Done on the iPad, in layers and tweaked in Photoshop.
