Additional Information

“Star of Africa” is one of my favourite paintings. Actually it is a colour field painting disguised as realism. Colour field painting is a style of abstract painting that emerged in New York City during the 1940s and 1950s and typically has areas of flat, solid colour spread across or stained into the canvas. It was inspired by European modernism and closely related to abstract expressionism. “Star of Africa” of course is representational and has an aviation theme but it also incorporates the basic elements of colour field painting which was inspired by the camouflage paint job on the Messerschmitt. I wanted to have it blend into the background as intended but the complementary colours give it a vibration.

This image was designed from the first concept to be a fully rotational canvas which can be viewed and displayed from any of the eight square or diamond perspectives. The rich colours of “Star of Africa” are the result of the influence of the ultra high saturated light of the Queensland skies above my studio.
