Original painting in oil on Marine Ply.
"There is a special place close to Carloforte Sardinia, with towering rock formations rising out of the sea. Men compete with ever more daring cliff jumps, the girls fain disinterest from close by."
The paintings of Johnny Morant are beautifully conceived, figurative forms which generate a dream-like pliancy. The use of pastel, soporific colouring contrasted with deep flesh tones and warm shadows allude to a sensation of an encompassing light. The figure, whose gaze always eludes us, dissipates into the background releasing the form into new dimensions of space.
