Description

The Drift is a large 120cm x 90cm abstract artwork. The Drift is a large minimalist piece with influences from from Mondrian, Rothko, and Motherwell.
Things change throughout our lives. The Drift is a study of change. While we cant determine the scale of the shapes, we can see the point of separation where one red shape appears to drift away from the other.
The concept of one shape drifting away from the other gives a sense of movement to the painting.
I have spent a lot of time preparing the canvas so that the coloured shapes appear almost flat. Through the use of various methods I have built up the surface so that the canvas has been "smoothed out". This effect coupled with the use of a low gloss satin varnish add a sense of depth or weight to the shapes that are displayed.
I have used artist grade acrylic paints on a high quality 12oz cotton canvas on Eraldo stretcher. I have finished off the artwork with several layers of matisse satin varnish.
The canvas will be signed on the front, after sale as it may be hung in either portrait of landscape orientation.
