Glitch III (Show Jumper) Stephen Riley 2019

More new work...

News from my Somerset studio
Another new piece of work just completed. This is hot on the heels of two concrete abstractions, posted here in recent weeks: 'Twenty Four and Five' and 'Twenty Four and NIne'. It's not as though I have suddenly become prolific - my paintings usually take months, sometimes years - but these that I have been working on for some time have finally come to fruition.

This is another in the Glitch series, based on digital malfunctions. These paintings may look different from the abstractions, but the impulses that make them happen are similar or the same: an interest in disruption, decay, entropy and such, and the creative possibilities thereof.
