About The Artwork

Inspired by the start of Spring this artwork is created by a collection of four paintings suggestive of trees in a landscape. The image encapsulates the flurry of soft and delicate blossoms in the breeze. The overall image is created with meditation in mind, a muted palette is of pinks blues and yellows calming to the eyes and creating a feeling of calm restfulness. Tranquil is a semi abstract painting depicting trees in a landscape. The artwork is made up of four canvases each 80x80cm which enables placing either side of a chimney breast wall or together as a statement piece. The artist uses a mixture of oil paint and oil dyes to create paint effects which give the work a pointillistic and luminous effect. The overall shapes and spacing creates a calming and harmonious effect.

ARTIST STATEMENT I explore the canvas with paint and sponges, dyes and brushes : looking past the obvious, discovering beauty in unfamiliar places. Immersed in the boundaries of the canvas I begin to create a world within worlds. There is no notion of beginning or end: just the story in transition that gradually unfolds in time. There are gates that open with light brush marks and delicacy: a revelation. Heavy laden sponges of paint open portals of darkness that construct patterns: a matrix. Texture shapes forms and the narrative begins…. I paint in layers like a palimpsest. The first layer is the most superficial, literal interpretation : the final image. Hiding just beneath, the symbolic or allegorical second layer : look closely and you will see.
