What have we here then?
This large rectangular abstract painting is an original artwork created with metallic gold paint. It also features a dense and glossy black fused with a carefully selected palette of complimentary blue colours.
I have split the painting into two distinct parts. I like to think of the dark areas being kept at bay by that beautiful gold – but choosing to keep a bit of tension with the way I have layered the paints so you’re never quite sure if one side is winning or not…
Details and textures
There’s no way I can show these in a photograph and, like all my paintings, the only way to fully appreciate them and the way that light bounces around them, is to see them for real.
However, I always do my best to show the more detailed side of things and in Trademark I have a lot of detail in what can outwardly appear to be a very minimal artwork. In an ironic twist this detaling has become a ‘trademark’ of mine (althought that wasn’t part fo the decison process in choosing a name!)
Carefully placed rivers and valleys meander and flow whilst other places get peppered with fragments of gold powder that’s been isolated from the paint.
Then there are the finer details that are almost hidden from view when you start to glance over the darker tones. But a quick scan reveals yet more delicate weaving of paint through what appears to be something very final and empty. In fact the black areas are full of life and energy and once again I’m choosing to show that even the apparent emptiness is full of really cool stuff if you care to stop and look.
I think there’s a deeper life lesson in there for all of us right?
