Recent abstract acrylic paintings by Propeller member Gordon Stamper.
“Using unconventional tools to apply paint adds an element of uncertainty to the painting process. The application of paint is messy by design allowing natural forces to play a part. At times, a single gesture might be enough to stand on its own or layers of acrylic paint might be applied, scraped off or manipulated at various stages of drying. Any gesture on the canvas poses a question and my response to that will determine the next gesture or application of colour. My preconceived plans may eventually dissipate allowing the painting to, simply, go where it should. A successful painting will be the answer to its own question.”
