“With cities, it is as with dreams: everything imaginable can be dreamed, but even the most unexpected dream is a rebus that conceals a desire or, its reverse, a fear. Cities, like dreams, are made of desires and fears, even if the thread of their discourse is secret, their rules are absurd, their perspectives deceitful, and everything conceals something else.”
― Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities
I created Something Else with a palette knife, using a variety of marking techniques. My marks express movement, stability and strength. This sumptuous textured surface gives life to my abstractions. In addition, the color, shapes, and the subtle allusions in my title, lead you through the emotional subject of this work. There is a sense of radiance as the light moves through the painting.
I am inspired by the French Lyrical Abstract style, which can be seen as a balanced elegant style of painting that is loaded with content from the natural world, often marked by sumptuous colour. The intention is to create finished work that is abstracted and more expressional than representational.
The sides of the painting are painted in continuation of the painting. The painting comes ready to hang.
