Freedom

Freedom. Fine art original oil painting on a 91cm x 61cm stretched canvas created in 2017 using a knife. Produced in cooperation with Alex Kriftsov. Original available.

Here is Freedom! my latest painting..

Freedom is a follow up of Leap into the Unknown which sold immediately during an exhibition in Taipei and is still on top of my most popular artwork. This painting is special to me. Please excuse the blurred photo as I have not scanned it yet. Also, please take the time to tell me what you think.

My full credit for the background music goes to George Michael (RIP George).

Starving Artist, burning the midnight oil and candle at both ends... The style of my artwork is modern, yet classical. Predominantly figurative, the tendency of my artwork is towards carefully composed anonymity, capturing the emotions and self belief of the subject, rather than characteristic individual representation. The creation of figurative artwork not only depicts the emotions of the artist, it transforms the artist's emotions. Art should be proudly displayed, carefully scrutinized, and in order to benefit to the fullest extent possible, it should be understood from the perspective of its creator - the artist. My figurative artwork is sensual and my ballerinas and dancers are passionate, moody and emotional. My preferred lighting, shading and contrast are dramatic. I simply adore light and am fascinated with its arguably undue influence on any subject. I delve extensively between the extremes of highlights and lowlights in my artwork in a chiaroscuro technique, occasionally minimalist, often leaving the viewer's mind to complete the picture and to add depth. I always strive to create an atmosphere in whatever I produce, at the highest possible quality and using either a knife or brush and a very limited colour palette of oil paint or pastels, usually alla prima, mixing and blending only on the canvas!
