Polyphony – Charcoal Vert
Availability: In stock
I have always enjoyed stretching the boundaries – the limitations, restrictions, possibilities – of ‘normal’ art materials and technique, finding out new and interesting ways of working. This has led me to my current series, utilising transparent colours and working almost exclusively with a palette knife.
From my new technique came composition and harmony, colour and texture, and my series “Polyphony”. Polyphony is simultaneously combining multiple parts, each with its own form and ‘melody’, to produce something more than the sum of its parts.
Working towards pure abstraction, in Polyphony I play with contour and colour, texture and meaning. Are these works truly pure abstraction, or are they landscapes? Are they of our world or from a dream? Are they purely form without reference to reality?
“Polyphony 2022 – Charcoal Vert” explores this theme through a palette of monochromatic harmony, with forceful as well as subtle colour, drawing the viewer’s eye around the painting creating a delicate interplay of patterns, texture and colours repeating yet interrupted.
This painting is on unstretched linen and will be shipped from Australia rolled, ready for the buyer to have stretched and framed.
