Additional Information

This is a very large abstract painting with a drifty meditative atmosphere. A big artwork from my ‘Aqua Vitae’ Series, about and inspired by wine and the ‘waters of life’ or ‘Aqua Vitae’.

This body of work was created around a commission I did inspired by the poetics and history of Wine. Although this one is more red based, it is more towards fruity nectar and lighter rose wine varietals perhaps.

In this painting the background has a gentle texture as well as the ovoid forms daintily drifting across the surface. The background in this painting has the beautiful texture with a warm underpainting peeking through the fluffy whites. Gestural brush marks add texture that acts as contrast to ovoid life like forms floating peacefully on the surface. The vivacious and earthy colours of the round forms speak of a spritz and a modest simplicity on the palette.

And of course it connects perfectly with my molecular-cellular biological abstraction. Here I am really pushing the colour and light vibrancy. Life over-enlarged until all that remains is vibration and colour.

Such a joy to look into the lush characteristics of wine. The generous warm tones on the palette and on the eye. The richness, generosity and depth. And then looking into the glass from above, the jewel of light coming through the colour, the wave of the swirl. I could go on forever about the richness of these experiences and the layers of history, but the pleasure is in the painting and the glass.

What I enjoy most about my paintings is they make people smile with a sense of wonderment and feelings of happiness as well as giving their walls style, finesse and with a splash of colour for years to come.

 

ALL PAINTINGS ARE VARNISHED with Professional Quality Artists Varnish, once they have been photographed. This gives a protective surface and an exquisite sheen that really makes the colours powerful & eye-catching.

The painting is on canvas wrapped around traditional wooden stretcher bars with edges that are a smart 3.5cm deep out from your wall.

The edges are cleaned, staple free and painted a neutral grey to compliment this painting.

Ready to put on your wall with hanging wire on back.

Painting is signed and titled verso.
