Splitting Skin by William T. Ayton

FEATURED IMAGE:
"Splitting Skin" 1998, acrylic on card, 40" x 34". From my end-of-the-millennium "Apocalypse" series.

NOTES:

"Swimmer & The Sea of Dreams" is a curious, flawed work, I know, but I like it for some reason. Started in 2002 in acrylic, finished in 2003 in ink (lower part, mostly).

The 6 images from "The Black Paintings", a series of around 12 large-scale canvases, were painted 1999 - 2000. These are as yet unexhibited.

The Duino Elegy series is incomplete (about half-done).

The Apocalypse Series (large scale acrylic works on card from circa 1998) contains 20-30 works of the same size and medium.

These monochromes consist of mostly larger pieces done using acrylic on either unstretched canvas or museum board, as opposed to smaller works in brush and ink on paper, which can be seen in the drawings gallery.
