Orion Nebula

£380.00

An atmospheric, dreamy abstract oil painting inspired by the beauty of our universe. The nebula are the middle star in the constellation of Orion. Throughout human history there have been many myths spun around the nebula; the Mayans for example referred to the nebula in their creation story. I was drawn to the beautiful colours and the ephemeral quality of the nebula as well as their sense of mystery.

The painting was built in many layers of paint. Like in all of my more recent work paint is applied, scratched or wiped off and re-applied lending texture and depth to the painting.

The canvas is painted around the edges and is ready for hanging.

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.
