Flares

Flares collection.jpgImage of three wide short abstract paintings hanging one above another on the wall the top painting is deep pinks, oranges and yellows. The middle painting is dark oranges to yellows and the bottom painting is light orange into yellow colours. Each of these paintings has a white background with a Dutch pour on the foreground. The Dutch pour has a flared shape that is broad on the right moving into a wispy centre and flaring out towards the left.

Flares is a series of Dutch pours painted in 2020.

 

Dutch pours are created using fluid paint which is manipulated on the canvas using air, creating bold shapes with delicate edges. The white negative space adds to the vibrancy and interest of the flowing central shapes.

The shapes, colours and motion within these pieces evoke multiple different natural sights: flames bursting into life, sea creatures darting through the water, or flowers blooming.

Moving towards the centre of the painting the shape becomes narrow and wispy and then broadens out again towards the left.
