welcome to my world of abstract painting!
Over the past year I’ve been working on a series of abstract shape paintings in bold colours. I have a large library of mdf shapes which are offcuts from my figurative wooden line sculpture commissions. I draw round the shapes in pencil, overlaying them until the canvas is fragmented with an even distribution of shapes. Abstract art is a sequence of choices. The shape library offcuts are important because they bring a predetermined element to the work, presenting a mixture of straight lines, angles and curves which are unnatural for the human brain to develop free hand because they are derived from something else, the by product of another work. Once the composition is decided, the work is about the challenge of balancing colours and the joy and relaxation of mixing paint and applying brush to canvas.
fine art giclee prints are available of the ones which have been proffesionally photographed for hi res prints.
