Art Description

Painting: Oil and Sand on Canvas.

This painting was inspired by seeing the world in shapes and forms. Everyday we walk, drive, cycle etc from 'a' to 'b' and sometimes we are so fixed on getting to our destination we let everything pass us by in shapes and colours. Building and structures become hard lines and everything else is soft hues and out of focus. Those 'Hazy Moments' which is where the title comes from. I take inspiration from many artists but love the Abstract Expressionism period. Mark Rothko inspires my technique of depth and I then look at more contemporary artist like Peter Halley for hard lines. Halley essays are highly informative of how he perceives the world today.
I hope to draw the viewer in and out of this painting, making them look from afar and then move in close to see the finer details. The abstract imagery is for them to see what they wish in it and be guided by the colours and forms. The painting is made up of numerous layers of oil paint and oil allows me to create the effect I am after. I can rub back and bring forward past colours on the canvas. I add textures like sand to make certain shapes come forward and you tend not to notice this texture until you come closer to the painting. The eye is constantly scanning the painting for the different depths.
