Ready to Hang
In this painting, the girl is presented in a cubist style. There is real emotion and complexity that comes through the broken forms of cubism. I used the play of warm and cool colors to help define the girl’s shape, while still fragmenting the form in a cubist manner. This is a large statement piece with a vibrant and bold color scheme. Acrylic on gallery wrapped stretched canvas. Edges are painted and may be hung straight out of the box.
Art and creativity has always been part of who I am, but I only really started to focus on painting full time at the age of 50, following a long and successful career in advertising. As an artist, I love working in many different styles and exploring a wide range of subject matters. The beauty of online galleries lies in their eclectic art collections, and without the pressure of brick and mortar galleries dictating what I paint, I am free to paint whatever inspires me. Painting for me is an experience of falling headlong into inspiration. An image I come across will stick in my head and refuse to leave until it finds its way onto the canvas. My work is visually diverse, and there are very few painting styles that don’t inspire me in someway or another. My paintings range from abstract and cubist, to impressionistic and realistic. Most recently, I’ve been inspired by quirky and retro TV shows to tell a story through my paintings. The lighting and cinematography of these shows inspire me to paint dramatic moments in time, and I create unique, intriguing characters that are open to interpretation.
