“Being solitary is being alone well: being alone luxuriously immersed in doings of your own choice, aware of the fullness of your own presence rather than of the absence of others. Becuase solitude is an achievement.” Alice Koller
I created Solitude with a palette knife, using a variety of marking techniques. My marks express movement, stability and strength. This sumptuous textured surface gives life to my abstractions.
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.
