Leap Into The Unknown

Leap into the Unknown. Produced in cooperation with Yohanes Paganda Halasan Harahap.

Leap Into The Unknown

Award willing fine art original figurative dance oil painting on a stretched 61cm x 91cm cotton canvas created using a knife. The original has long since sold, but prints are still available. Take her home today! THE perfectly defined artwork for this COVID-19 situation and how we will all recover as the lockdown restrictions are slowly lifted. We’ve all taken a leap into the unknown on several occasions (I’ve taken a few huge ones!) and this is just another…

I hope you like and can associate with it? Let me know…

I’ve recently started listening to the highly recommended Art Juice podcasts with Louise Fletcher and Alice Sheridan and this particular episode #4 is perfectly defined by my painting: Making Big Leaps – in art and life

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!
