Textures and patterns
I that I have the ability to just create what I want at will. Sometimes I just pick up a tool in the studio and use it on the piece in front of me without things. I guess that’s why I class myself as creating abstract expressionist art, lol.
With “into the abyss” I have done just that. So you will notice the deep dragged lines which run from the top left of this painting all the way down. The palette of colours that I chose for this piece reminds me of a sweet thing. Dessert maybe? I do have a sweet tooth so maybe that’s fitting.
If you look closely at the painting you will see a lot of movement and various mixing of paints. It is a real storm of colours and tones merging into each other, a lot of turmoil in this painting. You can see the deep rumbling of the black paint at the bottom of the painting, maybe where this storm originates.
Creation of the storm
With this piece being smaller in size, it was painted in one session but this painting does have other layers of dried colour underneath. Most of my abstract artworks do have many layers which offer character and history to the art.
The mix of passionate deep red colours and opposite flashes of bright white paint offers a real drama and contradiction in this work. Offen mimicking the story of human emotions. When you add the deep dug in textures lines in the paint, this painting is a real unusual stand out piece of modern wall art.
