Cool and contemporary
Blue is such an expressive colour and I have used it to great effect in Top of the World. Not only are there numerous blue tones used but they are also crafted in to an assortment of shapes and applied with different techniques.
Using a bright brilliant white and a sleek metallic silver adds to the calm, cool and contemporary nature of the painting and serves up wave after wave of refreshing interest and engagement.
Whether you think of mountains and glaciers or the majesty of the oceans this painting is packed full of repeating energy.
The way a painting carries you is so important to the success or failure of it.
It’s important that your eyes can fully take in the whole thing from a distance yet marvel at its details up close. It needs to move and change from every viewing angle to really stand a chance of captivating you.
In this painting we can see piercing crests, wide open valleys and deep dark chasms of colour. Your eye will meander and caress the surface of the canvas searching for references and anchor points whilst your brain works out how you feel about it.
That’s the bit I really like – letting the subconscious loose on something you can’t really quantify.
