I wanted all to stay the same, but feelings fade and everything changed.
I created Slowly Fading Away with a painting knife using two different mark making techniques, which resulted in a textured surface. The flowers are done impasto style. This decadent surface of different textures brings the painting to life. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges.
I am inspired by the French Lyrical Abstract style, which can be seen as a balanced elegant style of painting that is loaded with content from the natural world, often marked by sumptuous colour. The intention is to create finished work that is abstracted and more expressional than representational.
