This original figure painting on canvas-wrapped panel depicts the German Cyclist, Robert Forstemann being passd by Chris Hoy; the cyclist from Britain that won the gold. The foreshortened bicycling figures in motion figure were painted with a new type of mark making termed Pixelated Impressionism, a signature style in which the expressive swashes of paint depict the action of the original digital video reference image. The depth of the brushstrokes and details of this Contemporary Figurative art make it a museum-quality piece.
I am a painter who has based my popular overhead series on images from a digital video camera. The result brings together the perspective of the camera with the nuance control of light and color that can only happen with brush on canvas. My influences include Chuck Close and Willem de Kooning.
