Donald Short Artist Bio:
Although American by birth I have lived in the United Kingdom since I was a small boy. Although my work is broadly figurative and concerned with imagery, my work also expresses my interests in painterly abstraction. The image therefore often has to compete for dominance with the process by which it is being made; creating a tension between the surface/medium and the image itself - what Clement Greenberg liked to call 'dialectic tension'. The image wins every time, but the process is never the same from one painting to the next, therefore opening up the possibility of paint in its many forms to intercede, creating surprising and accidental surfaces that both contradict and reveal the image. I have also included a number of earlier works of architectural models and prototypes, where the approach/technique is clearly quite different.
