3S3 Shed developments

Points for focus, based on research. Aim to develop painting into something more committed, more contemporary yet still rocking the Folk Horror thematic.

Key points of focus for this series of sprints

Acid glazes, over grisaille

Impossible geometries

Paint effects that look like photoshop

Collaged photoshop?

Limited palette (blue/red eg)

Composition schemas


It’s been very uncomfortable not knowing where to take the painting, building on the little sheds that are still in progress – however the intention expressed above gives a context for the shed experiments.

…more of these in play

28/01/23 How I wish I had stuck to the same ratio format for each rather than the ragbag of ratios as then they would have made for an easier black hang! To do…is to learn!

Top right is the one that I like best – more atmosphere than the others and less literal. Something to be taken forth….

22/4/23 The little shack painting on the bottom left above just made 250 quid for the Wild Bird Hospital in Mousehole – very happy about that. several people bid for it!

After working in the computer industry and spending some years conducting research into cinema and digital media, I became convinced that the innovative qualities of videogames as participatory media required closer academic attention. As such I have spent most of my career championing the inclusion of games within the academy, and arguing for games as an art form, a role I continue as a Professor at Falmouth University. Alongside this, and my scholarly work on the Gothic, I also maintain, in various forms, a visual art practice. This blog comes out of enrolling on the MA Fine Art degree programme at Central Sr Martins. It is mainly a record of my reflections on the work that I have undertaken for the degree. After having written about folk horror in games and cinema as an academic, this blog will focus on folk horror as a focus for my art practice.
