For his first edition Che Lovelace has picked an original painting to transform into a print. The work came out of a long period of growth towards finding the right visual language. Sometimes a work can take Che 3 to 4 years to finish, going through various iterations.
The work captures Che’s inspirations perfectly; the human body, movement, and a sense of place usually expressed through colour and the Trinidad environment where he works. The colours used are actually inspire by Che’s environment. The dancers at Trinidad carnival, the warm sun and the bay near his home are all represented through colour in the work.
The edition is made up of four separate quadrants which is a method Che also uses in his originals. Almost all his larger paintings are grouped like this. While hand-finishing he has the opportunity to make new discoveries and connections between colours, lines and the stronger more important shapes in a composition. In his work he often uses palette knife and scraping techniques that were also translated into the editions.
