Up, is an acrylic painting on canvas, created in 2018, it measures 90 x 70 x 2 cm.
A combination of vibrant colours and dynamic shapes; this painting has an upward, positive vibe.
It was painted during the hot summer of 2018 on the Isle of Wight. Although the weather was freakishly hot and that is a major concern, being on an island surrounded by the sea afforded many inspiring experiences. In this painting, I use a large brush to apply the broad gestural strokes which define the triangular shapes and contrast through layering and vibey colours to communicate the verve of the moment.
Through my painting process, I explore the way we embody ourselves in different environments. I am interested in the way our inner experience crosses over with what’s physically there to create our unique perception of reality.
