Embrace the power
This is a very large red, black and gold abstract painting. Let’s make no mistake about the size and impact of this piece of art. I think it’s worth pointing out that you’re going to need quite a large space to hang this in and one that you want to crown with something completely magnificent and bold.
This is a very powerful and individual artwork and one that will always command attention. For the few that have seen it in my own gallery space I can tell you, it’s a tremendous draw and a very lively conversation piece!
Whither you classify this as modern or contemporary, or any other label for that matter, there’s no getting away from the scale of it, the strength of the colours and how I have arranged them
So now we’ve established the ground rules let’s talk about the painting. The dominant force here is that huge metallic gold star that moves in all four directions. You may see it as exactly that or perhaps something else. The refractive qualities of this particular paint really are quite extraordinary.
Then we can move on to the supporting cast of red, black and white paints. These are the backbone that allow the gold to do its thing. In some places the black is thick and dense whilst in others it is diluted from a rich, brooding mass into delicate fronds.
It’s this ‘washed away’ feeling that helps to tone down the penetrating depth of paint that is so prevalent, and is key to letting the painting breath. In so many of my works it’s this contrast between light and dark that carries the whole piece, creating something far greater than the sum of its parts.
