100 x 80 x 2 cm (39½ x 31½ x ¾ inches). Oil painting on canvas. Unframed. Ships bubble wrapped in a sturdy box.
This abstract expressionist oil painting from the collection 2022 is in a style I call “evocative abstract”. A sense of quiet clarity is built up through mark making and a finessed colour palette – in combination with oil sticks. There is a transparency usually associated with aquarel. And I’ve used impasto and sand to give extra plasticity and dimension to the work.
The 2022 Collection draws on themes such as silence and the “poetry of just being” (inspired by the likes of Pessoa and Pasternak). In particular, I strive to transform ideas into emotion expressed by texture and rhythm … I want the painting to evoke feelings, memories and images – stimulating their recall to the conscious mind. You are invited to explore and discover your own meaning.
