Dark Satanic Mills
Dark Satanic Mills
Whilst painting outside in the rain I added media/paint to the surface which then washed and spread and finally formed shapes which remained, these reminded me of smoke and dust and pollution rising from an Industrial factories from 1760 to the mid to late 1800s, hence the title. I added some impasto marks to represent in a semi-abstract way the factories themselves in dark compressed tight hues and dispersal with minor flecks of colour and giving a further perception of atmosphere and depth.
Psychedelic style steampunk fiction. Inspired from reading Steampunk novellas and listening to Abney Park and other contemporary genre music/themed blogs. This one is a developing style which incorporates pop art., classic abstract forms, indicators of the genre and my own fusion of inspirations..it is both loose and free, bright, vibrant and makes a statement. It is indeed a piece of steampunk fiction, a magazine front on the genre.
