Original artwork description:

“Sivad” is an acrylic painting on a black gesso ground over cotton duck 76cmsW x 102cmsH. The painting is built in layers of thin washes of dichlorotriazine dyes and heavy impasto. The painting is part of the ‘Jazz’ suite of works which relate in particular to the compositions of Miles Davis and in this instance Miles’ uncompromising free form jazz album ‘Live-Evil’. ‘Sivad’ is a musical score from the album. This series is named because it suggests a connection between painting and musical improvisation. The use of vivid colour celebrates the experimental and improvisational nature of its composition and pays homage to Henri Matisse’ cut out works of the same name. The name ‘Sivad’ can also be interpreted as meaning spiritually intense, highly individual and independent with no compromise. The name Sivad inspires verve, determination and warmth. It also reads as ‘Davis’ in reverse. When creating paintings I reference colourists such as Hans Hoffman, Barbara Rae and Howard Hodgkin. A3 prints on photo quality paper are also available. The limited edition of 50 prints include a cream window mount 41x51cms . The prints are signed and numbered and have a certificate of authenticity. Prints are posted in flat card envelope.
