Leap Into the Unknown – Fine Art Figurative Oil Painting

There’s a very high level of fine detail in this carefully composed, award winning, contemporary but photo-realistic painting. The modern dance ballerina model is simply beautiful. It’s a simple yet romantic and slightly sensual composition, full of hidden meaning, passion, drama and emotion. She’s oblivious to the viewer and taking a Leap Into the Unknown, as we all have done or must do at some time! The 91cm x 61cm original was produced in collaboration with Yohanes Paganda Halasan Harahap. created entirely using a knife, as is my style and has now sold, though prints are available… Take a print of Leap Into the Unknown – Fine Art Figurative Oil Painting home today!

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!
