Speed Power and Flow

Gavin McCrea’s work varies from large to intimate, with energetic gestural marks, paint drips, repeat patterns, screen print and hard-edge graphic elements, incorporating various transparent substrates as an alternative to the more traditional materials. Materials all reference the construction of surfboards and the translucency of the sea itself. The transparency of the surfaces combined with stretchers made visible, exposed, occasionally concealed, produces work that situates itself somewhere between painting and sculpture.  

Through his installation McCrea places the viewer within his world, attempting to give an insight into his fascination with painting and making and, ultimately, the sea.
