I create photorealistic drawings, abstract and conceptual paintings in mixed media, oil, watercolour acrylic.
Inspired by the mystiques of inner intuition and nature. I create art that captures the very moments that I feel internally as I tune into my inner self. My conceptual pieces dance and bounce the line between what I see between in my imagination and thought, in my personal life experiences and between the many visions from a feeling deep inside me. I am captivated by the ocean, and the power of nature as a whole, its complexity, power and existence. I paint my abstracts in freestyle, with a method of using a 'rawness' like technique with my brushes swaying them back and forth overlapping each stroke of paint in several layers.
Photorealism & Abstract
Photorealism is:- a genre of art that encompasses painting drawing and other graphic media, in which an artist studies a photograph and then attempts to create the image as realistically as possible in another medium (extract).
My passion is to recreate art from collecting personal resourceful imagery, using my own collection of memories and photos after I've spent time in that location. My work shifts between different artistic styles, depending on the source imagery or how I desire to create the tone. I develop drawings with lots of detailing, however I enjoy the freestyle method when it comes to my abstract painting as I am free to express feeling and it's intensity. I tend to use materials such as loose graphite, pencils, smudging (with fingers and cotton) for my drawings, with few tools as possible and I also deliver the same technique with my paintings as I find something quite beautiful, intriguing when keeping things raw.
