95 x 125 cm, oil on canvas, original oil painting, white frame, ready to hang
The viewer faces a seascape; the waves, horizon, mountains lit by the colours of the dawn, and the cloud-strewn sky with its clouds are all tangible. However the artist emphasizes painterly qualities and strong colour over the representational or figurative values of the subject-matter. Instead the use of intense colour becomes a vehicle for describing light and space, while colour tones and hues communicate the artist's emotional state. The artwork projects a mood and establishes a structure within the work without being true to the natural world.
Another element is the overall balance of the composition. The simplified forms and saturated colours draw attention to the inherent flatness of the canvas. Within that specific pictorial space, each element plays a specific role. The immediate visual impression of the work is strong and unified.
In this piece individual expression is valued above all. The artist's direct experience of his subject, his emotional response to nature, and his intuition supersede academic theory or elevated subject matter.
