Indulge, immerse, explode!
Giant’s End is a square contemporary art painting that features red, orange and gold as its primary focus colours. In to this goes a whole host of other beautifully complimented tones to create something spectacular and bursting with life.
It’s bold, fresh and exhilarating. This painting is very much a celebration of everything that we are. There are no punches pulled, no holds barred and absolutely no bullshit. It’s as carefree as I can be and, despite paying very close attention to everything I do, is utterly liberating.
Planning makes perfect
There is, of course, method in everything I do. One simply can’t turn up at the canvas face and throw paint around without careful thought and application. I have done that in the past and everything turns a vile pinky brown colour.
So, everything has a plan. With Giant’s End that plan was for bold, bright colours and my favourite piece of tech – my electronic spin table.
Centrifugal forces are pretty cool to work with because you never can quite predict exactly what will happen.; I mean, you can get close, but you can never be absolutely sure what will happen for each action you take.
Fortune favours the brave
There’s nothing lucky about painting; you plan, you paint, you assess. Get that wrong and it’s waste-bin time. Get it right and you let it dry long enough to sit down and smile at what you’ve done.
And that’s exactly how this painting makes me feel – like bursting into a giant smile. I got all the applications as I wanted them.
I spun everything just right, balanced the exploding bit perfectly, got the gold in the right quantity and spun it all around until that critical point where I knew instantly I got it!
Sometimes it all just works. And that’s what we have here. A stunning red, gold and orange abstract that flows, moves and thrills in all the right ways.
