Unsurpassed peace is an original, abstract pastel artwork created in April 2018. The inspiration for the piece came from considering the concept of peace over the Easter period. My response was to express the feeling in an abstract manner using vibrant colours.
The colour palette features blues, greens, red, peach, orange and white. Rich pastel lines were layered rhythmically across the paper in varying widths and intensities. Multiple, curved lines while simple in execution, form a deep and complex image. Fine, sharper lines at the top draw the eye through the artwork to a horizon line. The drawing evokes a feeling of peace, like watching gently, rolling waves from the shore.
Unsurpassed peace is 39 cm wide by 27 cm high. With the provided neutral toned acid free matt board and backing, the size is 51 cm wide by 39.5 cm high. As with all pastels framing under glass is essential.
Unsurpassed peace is one of a series of six abstract pastels, expressively exploring the concepts of joy, peace and love. All artworks in the series, were created using artist quality Rembrandt and Faber-Castell pastels on acid free Mi-Tientes paper.
This piece would look great hung with the depths of love.
