About The Artwork

'Fiesta 2' was only named after it had been completed. I see a happy party or fiesta in full swing. It is painted with acrylic paint on paper and is framed. A wide variety of mark-making methods were used, using brushes, palette knives, dripping paint and pouring paint then moving the paper to let gravity move the paint. The overall feel is colourful and dynamic. It would brighten up any small wall but would also look good with other paintings. 'Fiesta 2' is framed and ready to hang.

I am an abstract artist but also paint townscapes and street scenes. I live and work in Devon in the UK. My paintings have sold throughout England and also in Germany, Italy, Canada and the USA. I work mainly using acrylic paints on canvas, usually abstracts or semi-abstract landscapes. I also use ink on paper for more detailed studies of buildings or people. I am interested in capturing the essence of a place in black and white, or using abstract colour to convey moods and feelings about landscapes, either real or imagined. Most abstracts start with paint applied directly to the canvas. Areas of paint are worked with spatulas, paint brushes, rollers or even grout spreading tools. I also add paint from syringes and dropper pipettes. Many of these paintings are multi-layered and are worked on until something emerges. I rarely know what I am looking to achieve, it is simply an exploration of colour and form. Titles are given to works after they have been completed, often many days later. Many of my abstracts take a while to appreciate - they tend to grow on you for weeks or months after first hanging them. I am always surprised by the difference it can make to a painting to go from propped against the foot of the studio wall to being hung - that transformation is partly what makes painting exciting. Once hung a painting starts to interact with the room it is in, initially dominating (if it is a large one) but over the next few days it integrates into the room and settles into its new home. After that it catches your eye every now and then and you know you have found the right place for it. Our house is open to visitors who would like to look at my paintings and those of other local artists that we have collected over the years. Please ring 07971 258594 a day or two beforehand. If you like a painting but are not sure if it would suit your house I am willing to lend one for a week to people in the UK.
