Artist's description:

This is an original oil painting on paper by South Australian artist Scott Maxwell

What lies beyond the horizon.

Land or sea the horizon speaks to us, it reminds us that there is more beyond. The openness of country evokes feelings of the great expanse of our land, the open skies and ocean vistas remind us that there are other experiences, other people and country beyond that horizon. The view beckons us to explore, to travel to seek out what lies beyond. Many people spend as much time as they can chasing horizons, there is always more to find.

The multiple top and bottom edges of each band of colour or tone are horizons, occurring up and down the canvas. Each new horizon, a new time and place with all of the memories and anticipations that we feel when we cast our minds back or ahead. The layers or bands may represent the life experiences a strata of our time on earth.

With the squeegee I blur some of those horizons, I blur the bands of colour and tone that hint at the strata of our lives and life experiences that we stack on top of each other as we travel along our linier lifetime. I think it's a way to show that we don't always see the horizon clearly. For me it's a way to express how I see my own personal horizons and my lifes strata.

This painting can be mounted onto a cradled wooden panel with the sides painted ready to hang unframed. I can organise that if you are interested.

If you want a painting a particular size I'm willing to do commission work. Get in touch with me or the Artfinder team, no problems.
