Original painting in acrylic on canvas.

"I have always been fascinated by orange trees and the contrast and explosion of colour that they represent. I was thinking of Le Douanier Rousseau when I painted this and I wanted to reflect the wildness and almost jungle-like appearance of exotic fruit in an endless green mass of leaves. Original acrylic painting on canvas and wood."

Like all of his paintings, Tim Hale’s ‘Sunrise’ encompasses a simplified, organic form of representation whilst offering a self-conscious aesthetic. His aim is to convey the world with equitable treatment, from the natural landscape, to objects, impersonal crowds or more intimate portraits. Not unlike fauvist ideas, the subject which is represented seems almost second to the subject of painting itself and most significantly, of colour; here in ‘Sunrise’, the development of warm pink and oranges break through cool blues in an uplifting and atmospheric glow of colour. The soft blue brush strokes, which appear as if in the foreground, are reminiscent of the non-mimetic expanse of Kupka’s ‘Nocturne’, however, Hale’s approach feels less structurally confined and naturalistic in its approach. The blue blemishes across the warm sunrise are more indicative of rain drops on a window pane: at once random but beautifully reflective.
