Large works and the continuing ‘Garden Series’
Currently I have been working on a series of expressionist paintings called ‘The Garden’. It’s about the unseen energy and movement that takes place within nature. I try to convey the harmony and the chaos. The expression over realism. These paintings can become very complex and chaotic but I find nature sometimes equally that way. I enjoy the challenge of working with a large palette of colors and the way they work or fight against each other. It’s challenging that the moment you make some marks or changes in one part of the painting it affects the whole. I generally like to work quite large as I find it gives the greatest impact for the viewer. Chaos, movement, color, texture, shape and form, …. it’s all there.
