I started painting again with real brushes after a few years of doing it digitally. Twirling the liquid paint and spreading it on a canvas is so tactile, so sensuous… I love it! Below are two finished pieces. I wanted to stay away from figurative. I decided to explore the weight of colour. To play with how small amounts of contemporary, artificially created neon colours balance against traditional organic ones. It was hard. After several tries, I settled on juxtaposing fluid, organic weaving kind of strokes in traditional colours against rigid, straight brushstrokes in neon. When I was doing this, I suddenly thought of Piet Mondrian’s minimalistic colour field canvases. I ended up calling my pieces Piet Interrupted I and II as I deviated from his stark, chromatic pure, reductive type of work. What do you think? These artworks are for sale. Each is 40” x 60”, acrylic on canvas. Send me a message for details.
