The Reworked Blue Nude Giclee Print Art Collection Doug Kemp

Acrylic Painting Collection On Paper

The making of paper can be traced back some 2000 years to ad 105, where an official called Ts’ai Lun, attached to the Imperial court of China, created a sheet of paper using mulberry and other bast fibres along with fishnets, old rags, and hemp waste. As a medium for writing and drawing paper was born.

Painting is the practice of applying paint, pigment, color or other medium to a solid surface (the “base”, “matrix” or “support”). The medium is commonly applied to the base with a brush, but other implements, such as knives, sponges, and airbrushes, can be used.

In art, the term painting describes both the act and the result of the action (the final work is called “a painting”). The support for paintings includes such surfaces as walls, paper, canvas, wood, glass and pottery, copper and plaster and concrete, and the painting may incorporate multiple other materials, including sand, clay, paper, plaster and even whole objects.

The history of painting in both Eastern and Western art is dominated by religious art. Examples of this kind of painting range from artwork depicting mythological figures on pottery, to Biblical scenes on church walls or icons, to scenes from the life of Buddha (or other images of Eastern religious origin). However, some religions forbid the practice.

Relatively fewer works on paper have been produced by Doug compared with those on canvas and with the economy of scale also in mind, he often turns to print for his favourite images with the obvious bonus of being able to readily reproduce and spread the love further, including different versions to taste.

Doug loves a stretcher framework with canvas for the expanse it allows. Paper, particularly that of the specialist art grade, requires less preparation than a canvas. Modern acrylic paint has a high hue and, unless diluted, has a low bleed factor. The lower relative cost of production of a piece of work on paper allows greater experimentation, although the ability to over paint may provide less desirable results if the work is intended to be a finished piece. Although paper as a medium for painting is supported in the process, unless permanently secured to a rigid base, there is a realistic limitation on scale to make a practical piece of work.

“Studies” on paper for potential works on canvas may become desirable works in their own right, although the physical quality of such a piece is, by its nature, obviously lower. These may even be considered the “the negatives” (only those of a certain age will remember these) and even years later, may inspire further work or versions.

Spies Mini Collection Of Paintings On Paper

Spies, late 1980s acrylic paintings on paper from the relationship art series. These are not actual spies like 007 but rather observers. The title of the series reflects the subject matters of insufficient trust and love.

Here are characters whose intentions and true emotions are hidden. They are afraid of being hurt at the point where people might truly understand who and what they are. In this type of relationship, people pretend or act in certain ways to hide their own feelings. Shaken, not stirred. Not.

Industrial still life paintings on paper

Industrial still life works on paper from the 1980s. “Up the workers” had other, sad, connotations at the time. Although not intended as a political comment there may have been a subconscious influence (as many influences on me actually appear to be) by the current industrial relations.

It could also be, of course, they just have been the effect of country life emerging and the desire for the old city life or maybe even a celebration of getting away from it?! Looking pictures of pin-ups of glamourous woman while operating heavy machinery might have contravened Health and Safety regulations.
