Blue lines and other things
So in this new painting I wanted to create a bit of an abstract landscape (of sorts). Throughout the thought process I was keen to establish two things – a horizon point and a splash of colour.
For the horizon point I think it’s entirely feasible to select whichever line or band that you want – although the two that leap out for me are the orange one and the white on just above it.
The painting then is made up of a series of pours, firstly from one side of the canvas and then, after rotating, applied in the same way from the other.
Linear, regular shapes
As an abstract painter I am constantly challenged to set aside my desire for balance, uniformity and organisation and embrace the uncontrollable, organic and questionable.
So it was with enormous relief that I found a window of opportunity to paint something with a more regular structure and a linear application of paint.
In fact, Above and Beyond was created in one session and it was live streamed out on the internet – the video image link above links to it and you can also watch the live stream video here. (Be patient whilst we clear up the audio issue though!)
