Description

AXIOMATIC
120 x 90 cm
Oil on Canvas

A work that was firmly in my mind as I set out to create it - although there is an older acrylic work underneath that can still be glimpsed here and there, providing an interesting surface texture.

Starting with an idea and a rough sketch and minimalist under painting, I drew the design on the canvas freehand in oil paint using small brush and minimal gestural motions with my hand to produce the structure. I let it dry over a few days and followed this with a white to emphasise the design - not an easy decision as it looked quite good in the black and it was a risk to cover that up. It has provided an illusion of depth.
An axiom is a concept in logic. It is a statement which is accepted without question, and which has no proof. The axiom is be used as the premise or starting point for further reasoning or arguments, usually in logic or in mathematics. This means it cannot be proved within the discussion of a problem.
