Art Description

Painting: Oil, Gesso, Pastel on Wood.

As a part of my latest series of works, 'The solitude of Summer' was inspired by the work of Matisse. 'The solitude of summer' symobolises a bright and happy atmosphere of a communal space, but also the often lonliness of life. The surrounding plant life represents the health benefits of being around plants and flowers, which can act as a form of meditation, solitude and respite.

This picture aims to help the viewer have time away from the hectic goings on of everyday life, by having a slice of escapism hanging on your wall.

Using bold colours and wonky angles, I took Matisse's style and love of still life and made it my own.

This piece was show in Summer 2018 at On The Wall Art Space, Norfolk, UK.
