33.5x33.5x1.6 in ~ Painting, Oil
My hero, Vincent Van Gogh, painted his sunflowers in Arles, in the South of France in 1889. I painted my Egg Flowers in Samui, in the South of Thailand in 2020.
My true passion is in colour and how the arrangement of colour can produce a different emotional experience of art. I want to create paintings which draw the viewer in, which makes them stop…and then see more than the initial work form and colour.
I have a lot of influences from Lucian Freud, Picasso to Botticelli. A few years ago, I was given a book of Botticelli's works; his use of colour instantly struck me.
Since then, I have grown bolder and more spontaneous, too, using the palette knife to build texture into my work. I like to sculpt the paints with my palette knife and feel the passion and emotion as the image takes shape on the canvas before me.
