An original piece of orange abstract art including blue, purple and white enamel paints
Flame-filled fiery oranges mix with cool purples and whites in a riotous fusion of colour and form.
This breathtakingly complex painting features some astonishing detail and demonstrates enormous technical finesse and ability; whilst maintaining a regular, repeating composition that stretches across the whole surface of the canvas.
Of course there are other colours in here too; a liberal dash of red, the merest suggestion of blue and of course black and white.
I have been very meticulous with the composition in this piece; oranges dance above the main orange layer whilst black does exactly the same below the purple – and separated by the same distances so that the forms are not unbalanced. Nothing sits too high or too low to compromise the lines.
Every colour and every application is spaced at a common interval, something that can prove challenging when you’re attempting to create forms like these. I have turned apparent randomness into a precise linear expression. Study it with a slight squint if that helps…
So here comes the ‘B’ word again – balance. Whether you look top to bottom or left to right, between colour applications or through them; each part of this painting has been balanced so that no one part of it dominates.
I couldn’t allow that to happen as you would miss the real heart of this abstract painting – the detail. Take a click through some of the close ups underneath and you’ll see what I mean. For me, this painting NEVER stops moving…
