Original painting in oil on canvas.
"Studying the compositional effects of various mathematical patterns, this digression is a study on the behaviour of natural forms. Maintaining a strong sense of line, the painting attempts to bring to light that which has been previously painted in dark, and to study and play on the metaphor of light and dark, offering a lightness and weightlessness to normally grounded plant life.
Continuing with the contemporary dialogue surrounding Abstract-Realism, the work comments on our current perceptions regarding abstraction, and attempts to create an image whereby a strong sense of realism and a strong sense of abstraction are simultaneously achieved. The blue in the work can be perceived to be an almost colour-field like, abstract, expanse. All the while the Ivy winding through the work, painted realistically, affects our view of the abstract blue, distorting our perspective & alluding to the realism inherent in the blue expanse."
