Painting: Acrylic on canvas
Size: 100 x 100 x 2cm
This is a multi layered acrylic painting on a high quality canvas frame. In this larger scale work I have been preoccupied with the rhythmic qualities of hand writing and calligraphy, I have tried to infuse the surface of the canvas with a sense of light and intensity. There is no over arching composition; all of the myriad small brush-stokes and forms connect with and relate to each other. Below the radiating surface of indecipherable marks, there is a counterpoint of horizontal bands of tone and colour, echoing landscape and distant horizons.
Keywords: surface, colour, color, abstraction, landscape, golden, iridescent.
Please note that this painting uses iridescent paint and changes quite significantly depending on the angle of view. It is therefore quite difficult to convey this subtlety in still photography.
