Artwork Description

Acrylic on linen, ready to hang.

Signed on the back.

Here is a lovely autumn-winter warmer for you. Big open fire, Glass of Shiraz and hearty colours to enjoy.

Happy to say that ‘Aqua Vitae I Vino Tinto’ is back on Bluethumb after being in a lovely exhibition but sadly due to the Covid19 lockdown did not get to be seen by many in the real realm.

This is an original, one off, abstract painting on linen ready to hang on your beautiful wall. This large painting allows you to come in close and experience the joy inspired by water and wine, molecular worlds and microscopic life.

Burgundy, Claret, Shiraz, Pinot Noir a wonderful colourful one from my Aqua Vitae Series, a body of work created around a commission I did inspired by the poetics and history of Wine, and the ‘waters of life’ or ‘Aqua Vitae’. This one was based on a Shiraz. Lush deep colours, intensity and depth. And of course it connects perfectly with my molecular-cellular biological abstraction. Here I am really pushing the colour and bubbling vibrancy. Life over-enlarged until all that remains is vibration and colour and a big dose of Spring.

Such a joy to look into the lush characteristics of wine. The generous warm tones on the palette and on the eye. The richness, generosity and depth. And then looking into the glass from above, the jewel of light coming through the colour, the wave of the swirl. I could go on forever about the richness of these experiences and the layers of history, but the pleasure is in the painting and the glass.
Anecdotally the grey ovoids you see in this painting came from my friends experiment with wine fermentation in these beautiful concrete egg shaped barrels from France. After a visit to his winery I found these so adorable and quirky they could not help find their way into my painting.

What I enjoy most about my paintings is they make people smile with a sense of wonderment and feelings of happiness as well as giving their beautiful walls finesse with a splash of colour for years to come.

ALL PAINTINGS ARE VARNISHED with Professional Quality Artists Varnish, once they have been photographed. This gives a protective surface and an exquisite sheen that really makes the colours powerful & eye-catching.
The painting is on canvas wrapped around traditional wooden stretcher bars with edges that are a smart 3.5cm deep out from your wall.
The edges are cleaned, staple free and painted a neutral grey to compliment this painting.
Ready to put on your wall with hanging wire on back.
Painting is signed and titled verso.

**************
I have tried to keep the prices of my paintings low due to the effect of Corona Virus on the world economy and my income. I am hoping it helps some buyers to beautify their homes in this current situation and be able to support a sole trader - artist (that's me), at the same time.
Prices will return to normal when the world does.
