Kristian Purcell - Figurative paintings  Dessin, Peinture

The subjects of these pictures can be divided into two categories. I suppose the first is quite autobiographical: my friends, surroundings, travels, experiences, the places I go to drink and watch bands, or sing myself. The second relies on found images for inspiration, the images of people watching nuclear testing, or fashion photo that can be taken out of it's commercial purpose and transformed into something else. Memories have become increasingly significant to me and constructing a picture from a the memory of a moment is a something that is shattered by the use of photography: an image created by the play of light on film or an electronic sensor has little to do with the way our minds record - and often distort - things we have seen.
