The Supernature series of oil paintings is really a journey into the medium of oil paint itself. What can I do with this, what can I create that is unique to me as an artist ?
These works are very abstract but hint at landscapes and structures within the composition. There is a rhythmic flow to the paint strokes further enhancing the idea of energy forming the world around us. A sunset for instance is not a static event, it is constantly changing and evolving.
It’s through the use of thick layers of oil paint that I can create the textural effects. The texture can be further enhanced with lighting either with spotlights directly above or below the painting, or next to a good sized window. As the light of the day changes, the shadows created by the brushstrokes change how the painting is viewed.
