CHINA TOWN LANTERN
This painting illustrates the image of LANTERNS in china town coupling with some dark abstract iron gate on the background. The most common Chinese lanterns are red, oval shaped, and decorated with red or golden tassels. Typically, they come in many different shapes including square, rectangle, and spherical. In ancient China, they were used to provide light and eventually as aspects of Buddhist worship. Today, they are used only for decoration and modern forms of celebration and worship. Lanterns have become a symbol of national pride in China and are used to decorate homes and public places. The Chinese Lantern Festival takes place on the 15th day of the first lunar month in the Chinese New Year. Lanterns hung at Chinese New Year are thought to scare aware the Nian monster (a Nian is a beast that lives under the sea or in the mountains) and bring good luck.
An abstract artwork on canvas. Deeply textured and vibrant. This artwork was created in layers of intense colour which are allowed to pool in areas to create a real depth of colour. Multiple bright colours are washed and glazed over the texture in many applications and highlighted with light-reflecting metallics that change in different light sources.
A large square contemporary gloss varnished acrylic painting depicting The Monument, London. I painted an animated fiery background to give the impression of flames reaching up to the sky as may have been seen during the Great Fire of London, to which the Monument was built in commemoration. It measures 910 x 910 x 38 mm (36 x 36 x 1.5 inches) and is painted on a deep set high quality cotton box canvas (380g/m2). The sides are painted so it doesn\\\'t necessarily need a frame.
