Dark Forest

2024-02-14T10:32:43+02:00

Entering the Dark Forest, we find the fractal beauty of trees and mossy ravines reflected in deep waters. Small crisp flickering marks merge and dissolve on the picture's surface, whilst Layzell's abstract canvases never lose their characteristic deep recession of space. Large swathes of vigorously moving, veiled and dripping paint suggest the movement, patterns and texture of rock, plant matter and water.

Chulumanco “There’s nothing quite as valuable as family for those lucky enough to have one”. “It’s the stick-together family that wins the joys of earth, That hears the sweetest music and that finds the finest mirth; It’s the old home roof that shelters all the charm that life can give; There you find the gladdest play-ground, there the happiest spot to live”.

At no point in the history of painting has the black body been so exalted, fetishized, or scrutinised. I believed the matter to be one driven by colonial guilt, the attrition of white mythological power, and, in lieu of a more hybrid and global grasp of humanity, the need for revisionism. This greater inclusivity is certainly the case, but so is the ongoing commodification
