About The Artwork

Inspired by the beautiful nature I saw on my trip to Sicily, on and around Mount Etna. Mount Etna is one of the world's largest and most active volcano's and dominates the Sicilian landscape. She has an overwhelming presence, with many intense colours that she shows in abundance. The Sicilian's call her Mungibeddu or Mongibello in Italian, which means beautiful mountain. And beautiful she is. In this work of art, I was influenced by the beige/yellow sulfur and the dark and white clouds against the blue skies and the greyish colours of the once red hot lava. In the grey lava stone there were still some remains, stripes, of snow. Even though it already was September. In the cones of Mount Etna there was a palette of brown, beige almost yellow colours of rock. Contrasting magnificently against the grey. Loved this colour combination and put it in this painting. This painting can be well combined with the other painting based on the same inspiration; Mungibeddu part I. Mixed media on wood 70x70x4cm

My passion is abstract art. Not just creating art myself, but discovering art of others as well. Abstract paintings have been fascinating and inspiring me since childhood. As Dutch Contemporary Artist I specialize in abstract paintings, combining various techniques. In many of my paintings I like using seemingly random texture on canvas or wood panel which will show very subtle through the paint This gives a special extra dimension to the painting. Depending on the style, In some paintings I apply metallic or pearl coloured paint. This gives unexpected colours and reflections, depending on the angle at which you look at the painting. My work studio is in Eindhoven. Originally an industrial city, nowadays a creative arts hub for Modern Dutch Art. I was educated an engineer in computer science, graduated in Japan, and worked all over the globe. Interesting work, well paid too, but it lacked something for me. And that feeling only grew stronger with each passing year. Simultaneously, what I really did enjoy, my abstract painting, got reduced to only a few hours a week at best, in between my ever busy job and other -must do- daily activities. Then finally, I took a rather radical decision to follow heart and instinct, and traded in my laptop and travel case for a canvas and a painting brush. This meant also trading a successful business career for an uncertain future as an abstract painter. … Yet, it is a decision I absolutely do not regret, I enjoy my life as an abstract painter to the fullest. I paint daily, as I feel at that moment, without pre-set conditions. My Inspiration for eye catching art typically arises when I observe the changes in nature, or read of progress in science or amazing discovery in the cosmos. Every painting to me has to be unique, not constrained by just one style or theme. I want to create something that will attract people’s attention every day it is hanging at their wall, that will inspire and give a sense of gratification. I strive to have my painting to be your Statement Art in your home or office. If you would like to know more about Statement Art, how I view it and mean by that, check out my website. “Make your Statement with an eye catcher of John DutchArt”
