So this abstract figures in landscape oil painting #1 is a single canvas work.In a split moment of time this painting shows a landscape separated by a diagonal line,suggesting a separation of sky,combining the figurative and the abstract.
Why? My creative process!
So I use Color,line and space and gravity
Because I think about beginnings and endings of any moment and that exact moment of the beginning and the end.
This painting took 4 months to complete and the process includes "stretching" the canvas over the wood frame.But I do not use "Pre-stretched canvas and no sketches were done.
I used the blank canvas as a starting point with paint applied at the top which allowed the black paint to drip so this was the beginning of this painting.
I use a variety of different brushes and oil colors.How many?Over 50 different types and styles of brushes.How many tubes of oil paint? Over 100 different tubes!This creates a moment in time.Above the horizon,black paint gravitates into the white landscape,branching into shadowy shades of grey
Drips of color ,shapes and lines of saturated color,with glossy and matte surfaces.Brilliant imagery,a split second in time.
I do not make copies of my paintings.
No limited copies and no other similar.
There is only only one original unique modern work with saturated earth colors,brushwork and drips of paint.
