Just accept it
Just accept it
This is a large painting consisting over several layers of paint, acrylic and oil and oil pastels, partially impasto and constructed from recycled materials on a box frame. This piece which initially started off as message art with the words \"just accept it\" painted and re-painted in water colours over white emulsion and then gouache then acrylics onto to a dust sheet until all the fabric was saturated with a white background and the words once more washed out.
It was at this stage some 20 hours into the painting using water based media that I decided to turn the substrate into a full blown painting as the background was now capable of holding more layers of paint no longer being a fragile dust sheet.
I began to design the painting, inspired by Picasso, Cesar Manrique, Kandinsky, Klee and others with direct use of vibrant colours and forms usually expressed by 1950\'s abstract expressionist art and early Sixties fashion.
The painting took on both flow and conflict, distinct shapes with seemingly a distinct purpose and as it developed I changed the palette and media again using alkyd paints, oil paints and eventually oil pastels to complete this journey.
The abstract context reminded me in total of a psychedelic view upon a landscape, perhaps there are fish swimming in a sea beneath a mountain or something else that you or other may see.
It is what you want it to be and I, just accept it, a painting which took more than 100 hours and marks an unusual creation from recycled materials to a piece of established traditional form art.
I have invested my time, skill and sheer enjoyment of the process and hopefully you can appreciate it, like I do - now it is for genuine sale and I have reduced its price but not its value to attain this aim.
Because I am charged no commission to use this site, this is the most affordable you can purchase it direct from me, the painting is in Leeds in my possession and includes £40 UK mainland delivery.
