Iain Connell: Artist’s Biography
utilizes the human figure as it’s starting point towards abstraction.
I initially synthesize a number of abstract compositions in charcoal and
oil paint on paper. During this process I can sense a tangible dialogue
between each drawing which results in a final composition which is then
followed through to it’s conclusion on canvas.
