Acrylic paint ‘chips’ were used for this artwork. In the process of completing artworks, Rupert is often left with unused paint. This dried paint was collected from his palette, combined into cubes with resin, and mounted on a wooden panel with a final coat of resin.

These panels, each painted individually and coated with resin, can be displayed with different spacing arrangements, which change the feel of them collectively, and the space between each panel becomes part of the composition. They can also be hung horizontally, and can also be shuffled around, creating entirely different compositions. The panels are 5 inches x 72 inches and can be produced in a variety of sizes.

What kind of artworks are you currently working on?  

Presently, I spend most of my time on commissions, which allow me to fund other works. I am also producing new works with resin, Perspex and some works with torn and ripped canvas.

How do you like to work?  Do you like to produce artworks at a particular place or time?  

I work mostly at my studio, and work any time: day or night. Recently, I have done a few “Artist in action” live paintings for one of our local galleries here in Barbados.

Do you think your artworks have changed over the years, and if so, how and why?

Yes, my works have changed over the years. Mostly the changes have happened as a result of life experiences and my growth spiritually. Additionally, I feel that my creativity and inspiration develops with the discovery and use of unusual materials and techniques. Materials I have used or experimented with are mostly for creating a texture, such as artworks using sand, card and wood chips, fiberglass fibers and coconut fiber, tree branches and gold leaf. Also, an unusual technique I have used is, instead of finishing with varnish I used it as a medium.

What are your goals as an artist?  What would you like to accomplish?

I have three goals:

Firstly, constant reinvention and production of quality works;

Secondly, to produce an exhibition in Japan; and

Thirdly, a long term goal I have is: I have been seeking investors to assist with providing a home for our national art collection in Barbados; I envision that this space would also have a gallery and studio spaces for artists of all genres and nationalities.

Q: 現在どのような作品に取り組んでいますか。

A: 現在ほとんどの時間は委託された作品の制作に費やしています。その資金により、他の作品の制作に取り組むことができます。また、現在樹脂やパースペックスを使用した新作、そして破れたキャンバス•ちぎれたキャンパスを使用した作品も制作しています。

Q: どのように制作するのが好きですか。特定の場所や特定の時間帯に制作するのが好きですか。

A: 私はほとんどアトリエで制作をしています。時間帯は日中または夜、どの時間帯でも制作します。最近地元バルバドスのギャラリーのために、「Artist in action」ライブ•ペインティングをいくつか実施しました。

Q: 作品の作風は時の流れとともに変化してきたと思いますか。どのように変化し、なぜ変化しましたか。

A: はい、作品の作風は時の流れとともに変化してきました。私の人生経験と精神的な成長が、作風の変化をもたらしたのです。また、珍しい素材やテクニックの発見•使用により、私の創造性やインスピレーションが発展するのだと感じています。あるテクスチャーを生み出すために、例えば、砂、カード•木材チップ、ファイバーグラスの繊維•ココナッツの繊維、木の枝や金箔等といった素材を使用した作品を制作し、試してきました。また、今まで使用してきた珍しいテクニックとして、ニスで絵画を仕上げるのではなく、それを素材として使用したこともあります。




A: 私には3つの目標があります。
