About John Giese
The symbols of Wild Dogs, Bulls and Horses are examples of primal power or presence which trigger deep memories and experiences in us all.
These paintings are direct and engage the viewer.
They are decorative, individual, sacred and possess a physical confidence. The works address issues of freedom and presence. My compositions are designed to create tension and rhythm. Gradually enticing life, light and movement into the work; endeavouring to keep the work open and spontaneous as long as possible.
Colour schemes have a symbolic language, Earth tones represent the elements while the primaries and their varied tones represent light and its spectrum.
A mixture of surface finishes and linear marks create a variety of visual stimulation. The formal qualities I use aim to effect the viewer; so they feel they are in the presence of something living, aware, authentic and very rare.
All works for sale, commissions welcome.
