This was painted specifically for a friend. It is very ‘Tim Burtonesque’.

This painting was created with more of an aesthetic in mind and is my first painting using oils! Although it is abstract with no immediately recognisable forms, there is more of a conscious subjectivity at work here. The use of purples, reds and blues are designed to create a sense of comfort, reassurance and elegance. These colour tones are certainly pleasing to me as an artist.

The ‘swirls’ that bisect the canvas are also visual ‘short cuts’. They don’t immediately look like anything recognisable but somehow create a sense of familiarity. They are smooth, sensual shapes that are pleasing to the eye. In this way I like to think that they put the viewer at ease, leaving the mind clear to make visual interpretations.
