Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Pastel and watercolour pencil on Canvas.

I have been researching words that do not have any definition in the English language, then trying to encapsulate it into my paintings.

Dépaysement is one of those words that doesn't have a direct English translation. I dig words like that. It's a French word whose quick definition is “disorientation”, but the more elegant definition I just learned is this: “The unsteady feeling you get when you are away from your home country.”

I am also still exploring the boarder between representation and abstraction. I only refer to the photograph I paint from and mainly look at abstract artists for inspiration.
