Oil on canvas
Gestural work, expressing liberation. Naive brushstrokes have been left unrendered, unblended to signify raw energy. The work came after a series of commissions with set briefs, so the artist had some pent up creative spirit, which needed to be transmitted rapidly to the canvas. A series of considered underlayers give further depth to the overall effect. The contrast of the deeper colours and the light is intended to convey a sense of emergence, of coming to the surface. This is a signature piece.
