"My work has often been described as #quirky, sometimes #dark and often #humorous. The subjects range from bleak cloud filled #landscapes, to #portraits of people and objects painted on old hard cover books. An undercurrent of unease unites my subjects, threading its way through all my pictures. The core of my subject matter is found photographs from the mid twentieth century that have been lost or discarded. They have an immediacy and veracity that I have difficulty finding in today's media. Painting these images stems from an overwhelming desire to celebrate the forgotten life; I can't help but form a narrative with subject while I'm painting, hence the importance of painting them on old books; the title often alludes to the story I've conjured" James King⁠ ⁠ Mr Tallmadge 2015 by @jamesking_paintboy⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #beckerminty #artist #australianartist #art #australianart #inspiration #australia #sydney #painting #colour #artgallery #artforsale #interiordesign #artmoney #talent #interiorstyling #model #picoftheday #instagood #talent
