Original oil painting by James Shipton on block canvas, frame not required.
Maternitatem - Motherhood
My depiction of how modern life has impacted motherhood, through biblical and pagan symbolism, that draws heavily on the work of Gustav Klimt.
My works are heavily influenced by the art work of Degas and Gustav Klimt.
My desire is to capture the beauty of the female human form, whilst portraying human isolation (loneliness). I achieve this through a process of capturing reality through life drawing using charcoal sketches, breaking it down to deliver an impression of the human form (nude), whilst capturing the psychological complexity of the human nature through the portrayal of human isolation.
Following the breakdown of the human female nude, I use the sketches to the build and create paintings in oils.
