In this painting the vivid green and yellow sweeps across the foreground and then up both sides of the canvas. With some of my semi abstract work I like to suggest the form of something, rather than depict it fully. This leaves room for the viewer’s imagination to work and our imaginations, afterall, are one of the most precious things we have.
This was a commission I undertook for a friend in south London. He wanted a bright and colourful modern art painting for his open plan kitchen. Once stretched on to the wooden support frame this painting measured approximately 150 x 100 cm. In order to work with the colour scheme in the kitchen, my friend asked that I avoided using much red paint. I substituted red in the composition for additional orange, pink and black, as well as the many other colours that normally go in to a painting such as this.
