A long abstract painting
This particular original painting is a series of stunning blended colours fused into exquisite shapes and textures.
I rarely do anything quite so bold as this and certainly not with such an unusual combination of colours. But the need to press ever forward is so intense that inevitably it leads me to paintings like these.
I’m really not sure why it works but it does. We have quite profoundly opposing colour groups put together as well as a very unusual series of techniques and application methods that really shouldn’t be used on the same canvas.
But somehow it all works…
Rest points and common themes
In a painting that’s complex and demanding it can often be necessary to put in a few rest points so the your eyes have time to regroup. In Distal Margins it’s the central area of green/yellow that does it by separating out the two end parts.
Through this though there’s the common theme of the pink/lilac river of paint that almost disappears through the central part but then meanders its way back in to life as it reaches the other side.
I had to create this mid point of calm to avoid the sides from becoming too overbearing and heavy – despite these being where the bulk of the action is based.
