Colouring a Rainy Day (Large)


A large, abstract oil painting with striking red and green hues set against a black background. I experimented with manipulating paint in different ways including heating the paint and letting it melt down the canvas. Paint has been applied with thick, gestural brushstrokes and with a palette life. Liquin adds a slight sheen to the surface.
The painting is inspired by mood rather an imagery.

The box canvas has been painted in black around the edges. Wire and hooks are attached so the canvas is ready for hanging.

Angela Dierks

I am curious by nature, always ready to further explore new ideas and impressions.  Much of my earlier range of work is concerned with memories and dreams peeling away at them layer by layer. Recent works are abstract representations of landscapes finding inspiration in the beauty of the outside world: gentle landscapes in the UK, the Arctic Circle, the warm and fiery tones of Mediterranean countryside, dramatic skyscapes and the movement of the sea.   The landscapes are inspired not only by the visual markers of a landscape but also by the emotional impact they leave on the spectator. I aim to lend as much ‘feel’ to my paintings as possible, ‘controlling’ the painting as much as possible while also allowing for more spontaneity and risk by applying paint in a variety of ways: smudging, scraping, flicking, squeezing and rubbing paint onto the canvas, scratching paint off and re-starting the process. The process thus mirrors the natural eroding process that happens in the development of landscapes. My work has been sold to art collectors internationally with many returning customers. My work is regularly exhibited at local galleries and art fairs in London.
