What is harmony?


My latest painting, 'Harmony' represents peace and balance. I was inspired by the recent events race issues in America. The creatures represent humans, the red represents pain, blood, the bending hands and roots can be regarded as support or a struggle. A range of rich colours contrast with light pastels. Asymmetrical arrangement of the figures in portrait format. I used the impasto technique when overlapping elements of the piece. Some parts of the painting were made using a paint pouring technique while others were made with leaves, my hands and a brush. Like with other pieces, marks are also made with a knife. The mood of the painting is stimulating and thought provoking as the dark and light side contrast with each other and make us think. Overall shapes are abstracted, stylized, defined but blurred.
