Black and yellow art
Black and yellow art is a favourite of mine to paint with. As with all my creative output I tend to find small pockets of colours and shapes that I enjoy working with more than others. Black, yellow and white are an absolute must whenever I get the opportunity to work with them.
So, it is with pleasure that I bring you Jackhammer. It’s a powerful and unapologetic painting that matches its name perfectly.
It’s quite the statement, doesn’t stand on ceremony and doesn’t have any airs and graces about it. It’s a real piledriver of a painting that is as bold as brass.
A painting with two sides
But that shouty bravado does have a softer side and this painting really is a tale of two halves. Its more serene side can be picked up in the effortless tiny details that fill that enormous central expanse of paint. So too in the calming nature of the metallic gold that is infused along the whole width of this rectangular artwork.
I like the fact that this is a bit of a Jekyll and Hide painting that can thrill and excite as much as calm and relax. I have taken great care to bring lots of small elements together to create one galloping crescendo of attention.
Things like the whisps and loops of black that dance and move in carefree jaunts away from the central mass. It’s also evident in things like the delicate cell structures and the way I have thinned paint to create textures of gloss and matt. It really is quite a feast for the senses when you’re standing in front of it.
