Art Description

Painting: Oil, Acrylic on Canvas.

Acrylic and Oil on Canvas

46 X 46 X 3.7 CM

This is the first piece I painted for my series 'The House' which should be finished come mid to end 2020. The series focuses around trying to get out of a mindset and feeling of being trapped by things in life holding you back - be it mental health or something else. It aims to explore the feeling of acknowledging these feelings and finding a way to push out the bad and leave it behind for a more free mindset.

The series is somewhat based on personal experience of finding myself stuck with a feeling that I didnt want to live with forever so I tried to work on bringing positivity into my life with things that worked for me personally. Everyone is on their own personal journey and this series aims to illustrate some of that. Although the subject matter may seem serious, I wanted to make use of my usual vibrant colours and somewhat surreal and playful way of displaying deeper narratives within my work. The details and colours in this piece are very inviting and easy to get lost in once the piece is in front of you to see the intricacy of the paint and brush marks.
