Contemporary modern artworks by Shane McCoubrey turn the medium of painting on its head with the introduction of layering of natural and recycled materials, crushed gems, sprays, handmade inks, processes to reconstruct the beauty of the earth’s rocks, landscapes and upper atmosphere weather systems. Burning, smashing and recreating to give depth artwork a 3 dimensional effect
The beauty of the Universe with the creating and destroying of stars is all around us. Our earths planetary history is still hidden away under layers of rocks or deep oceans away from human interference. It is the escape from anything destructive and human based that is the fuel for my artwork, this need to escape to a hidden place.
