Lure & Illusion

As the title says, “Lure & Illusion” (oil on wood panel) is as the title suggests, dealing with more simplistic understanding of that metaphor, yet opening out into stranger possibilities of hypnotism, madness and opium dreams!

UPDATE

I think it would take too long to write about everything I’ve been doing in the time that has lapsed since my last post. I have managed to move into a completely new studio, situated on farmland in regional Queensland Australia, just outside the city of Toowoomba. It’s a beautiful place & I hope to share that with you in an upcoming video interview I’m doing for ABC Open, shooting is Monday 7th of September, stay posted. Other than that, I will let the pictures do the talking.

If your reading this; thank you so much for your support, and I’d like to ask you to keep your fingers crossed for me as I await to hear if I’m a finalist in this years Darebin Art Prize in Vic. Also as the deadlines for the Paddington and Hawkesbury art awards approach later this month.

Cheers,

 

Jared Fountain

My Newest Work

It’s been so long since I I have kept my blog up to date and it’s about time that I give you all a taste of everything that I have been relentlessly pursuing in my studio! So without any further ado here are some images of a brand new body of work that I intend upon exhibiting sometime in the near future, not only that but I am also currently working on plans for my first show in Sydney which I will indeed keep you posted about!
A big thanks to all those who continue to view my blog although I have been so overwhelmed with work in my studio that it has been quite some time between posts, also keep an eye out on the gallery section as it will soon be updated with fresh material. But for now I will let my painting do the rest of the talking, I hope you enjoy!
Cheers,

Jared

A Little About ‘RED’….

I thought I had better perhaps just let a little slip about ‘RED’ before the exhibition opens; the idea for calling the exhibition RED came to me quite a while ago actually, I think it must have been around November 2012, the colour red is a perfect emotive word that compresses and distils a whole heap of thought and feeling that I have for some time now wanted to communicate.  The show is premised around a loose narrative of personal sensibility and social interests, and in particular the casting of the fashion world as an iconographic medium to express my own ideas etc.  When the show became more set in stone, I wasn’t sure whether I should still call it RED after seeing that Taylor Swift had just released an album under that name, however the word simply holds too much of an affinity with what I wish to express, and therefore I hope people can see what it is I am trying to communicate under the banner of that word, and see it independently from Taylor Swifts own ‘claim’ upon the word.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and I will be sure to keep updating events and details as they unfold, cheers, Jared.
