Artist's description:


A vibrant and uplifting acrylic painting on stretched canvas measuring 80 cm x 60 cm x 2 cm. This painting was inspired by the sights and scenes of the Brighton Festival here where I live on the Sussex coast, and the feeling of the whole Town being 'on fete' with so much going on throughout May.

quote :"What concerns me when I work, is not whether the picture is a landscape, or whether it's pastoral, or whether somebody will see a sunset in it. What concerns me is - did I make a beautiful picture?" (Helen Frankenthaler)

About my work

A colour, a place, an expression, a feeling, a memory. My paintings are often built in layers of paint and glazes,each layer influenced by a memory or experience. Layers. shape and line feature heavily in my current work.

These represent the real and the unreal, the seen and the unseen, the history of the inner artist, the history of paint, the effect of mankind, and the layers of life itself. I'll sometimes begin a painting with the essence of an idea, but I'll continue the struggle to look inwards and paint from inside, so I'm never quite sure what the end will be like. It's a wonderful freedom.

Artistic influences and people I admire are many. I adore the work of Peter Lanyon, Richard Diebenkorn, Ivon Hitchens, and most of the St Ives group of Artists. There are too many to mention here, but I admire how so many artists way back in history have pushed the boundaries and bravely challenged the 'accepted', Kandinsky, Mondrian, Helen Frankenthaler, Malevich etc.

All my paintings are finished with 2 coats of gloss UV protection varnish.
Paintings are signed on the reverse, but may be signed n the front , if requested.
I may remove a large canvas from a stretcher if requested to make international postage cheaper. I will always try to make my work affordable, and often offer free UK shipping,free European shipping and subsidised international shipping. If you are interested in a painting and the shipping is internationally expensive, please contact me to see if I can offer a discount.
