Robin Eley  Artist, Los Angeles/Australia

I like my gesso as smooth as possible. 5 coats with a foam roller, with a light sand between each layer, then I use a plasterer’s knife to skim coat the canvas and fill in all the imperfections. It’s oddly satisfying work 😜

Had a blast last night and today with the students of @westmont_art . Two lectures, senior project critique and a painting demo. Big thanks to my man @scottandersonstudio for making it happen.

From 2013, oil on linen. A series of portraits where the subject is receding into a cellophanic world. First exhibited in 2013 at my solo exhibition “Idolatry” and then in 2014 at the National Portrait Gallery in Australia alongside a stellar lineup including @patricia.piccinini @ronmueckart @samjinksart @michael_peck_art @natashabieniek and @juan_ford_art

2014

The 9 paintings from my 2014 solo exhibition PRISM in Los Angeles. Yellow, Orange, Red, Magenta, Blue, Cyan, Green, White and Black, all oil on linen. The shapes and lines obscuring and fracturing these portraits were mathematically derived from the 3D sculptures I made of each subject. Look closely and you’ll see the heads in some of them. Check out the sculptures in my previous post and the documentary about the making of this exhibition in the posts before that.
