My Secret Paradise is a magnificent, brightly coloured new painting that combines all major colour groups into a rich, vibrant interpretation of paradise.
There’s something quite surreal when you stand in front of this abstract painting. It’s a very unusual and very pleasant sensation that leaves you feeling completely part of it; just as if you’ve left this place for a moment and become immersed in a world of colours and forms.
In a heartbeat you’re taken from green and yellow into a cascade of deep red and violet. Then you can be swept away by deep blue and aqua then whisked away into a melting pot of silver and gold.
Details are everything
I actually started off by using a compressed air gun after I had applied the paints onto the canvas. The early stages of the painting were created by moving paint with varying degrees of air pressure controlled by a trigger on the air line. Tis gave me some great initial forms but I knew I needed something else.
So I came out with the grout spreaders to start to flick paint around the canvas so that I could better move parts of the paint around. This enabled me to be more precise with where the paint went and n terms of being more accurate with shape construction and paint distribution.
Details and obsessions
Time after time I talk of the detail levels I build into my work. There’s good reason for this and that’s because it’s one of the defining qualities of my creative output.
I am know for the astonishing amount of detail I put into my work and in this painting it’s shown off in the most spectacular way. Some of the close-up photos show you some of what I’m talking about. Every twist and turn is full of a thousand tiny rainbows all bursting with multi-coloured wonder.
