Oil on canvas
Dimensions: 40cm x 40cm
Having studied the work of the likes of Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman, and Ad Reinhardt in university I was intrigued as to how they created their work using limited shaded of the same colour which at first glance appear to be just a block colour on canvas. I decided I should like to give it a go and create my own version using these effects and giving it my own twist as every artist should, creating this fun modern abstract oil painting.
I have always been one to challenge society, not in a law breaking, hooligan type way. More in the walk out of line type stance with enough impact to create the impression that I don’t follow the crowd. Art however is such a personal journey that allowing anyone to view it can sometimes be like having your soul on display for the world to mock. Having found artists that create art that could shock and leave their audience both puzzled and in awe simultaneously gave me the hope that my art also could be accepted or at least appreciated.
