The what and the why
Nine Below Zero is a large-scale modern art painting created with a series of deep blue and black colours. Added to that is a whisp of maroon and white.
The power of this painting is extraordinary. One one hand you get the sheer depth of the black and blue layers that draws your eyes towards the centre, only to be spectacularly dispersed in all directions by the explosion of white that radiates from the centre.
One of the reasons you get such an overwhelming sensory experience from this is it’s size. As you stand in front of it you can’t help but get immersed in it completely. That may sound rather grandiose but it’s the only way I can describe it.
Details and finish
And it’s this position that really opens up the painting. From here you get to see the incredible paint cell structures I have created. They are everywhere and populate many of the outlying areas. These delicate features suggest an almost ethereal quality to the piece and are complete polar opposites to the depth and finality of the black and blue background.
The painting has a high gloss finish and bounces light around in some spectacular and unexpected ways. It has textures, craters, rivers and valleys and is every bit as wonderful as I say it is!
A painting like this needs the right place to hang. So having a reasonably large space to fill is essential as this will need room to breathe.
