Black Eyed Susan

BLACK EYED SUSAN 2009 – 2012 acrylic inks on canvas

The BLACK EYED SUSAN – The Complete Series continues a long established way of working by C.A.HALPIN that is based on found words, images and notes. The paintings contain written messages and images, layered over and turned around until the words become abstracted, distorted and almost impossible to read. During the process the paintings are worked on and rotated until the images have no top or bottom, the viewer being guided only by the forms that emerge as they are painted.
