The most fleeting of hues and coloured saturations, the temptation of more telling brushstrokes and the introduction of more layers, narrowly resisted and avoided in the onset of the young woman’s hair alone, hugely popular contemporary figurative artist, Christine Comyn places her visual emphasis and belonging in the fairest and most beguiling of facial skin tones, the turn of the young woman’s swan-like neck and slow-motion application and dedication of all mediums and emotionally-imbued textures in this her latest creative venture. ‘Looking Back’ is something we’re told that we mustn’t engage in anger, yet the very art and cerebral craft of being retrospective is normally for all the wrong reasons; resentment, revenge, wanting and an over-riding sense of loss being key notion triggers. As to what the female subject of Comyn’s newest compositional piece is harking back to, is discovered in the realms of the viewer’s fantasy and transient whim, yet having said that the artist’s choice of palette steel greys, punctured blues and disjointed yet fleshy monotones - suggests a deep sense of loss, bewilderment and unanswered questions still lie ahead.
