Glitch II (D-Day Soldier - after Spielberg)
Stephen Riley 2018
Been busy in the studios again. This is the latest completed work. As with others of the Glitch series (there will be more) it is to a degree representational, in that is is taken from life, albeit life mangled by various processes.
The Glitch series are from moments when a digital television broadcast has become momentarily mangled. I like to capture those moments and recreate them in paint, so they make to journey from the ephemeral to a medium that is often used to memorialise. As such, even though these paintings are not totally abstract - though they are to the extent that the digital mangling arbitrarily makes them that way - they are still within the range of interests that inform my usual abstract work, which might be described, in a simplified way, as concerned with surfaces and their possible disruptions.
