Outside the box
Outside the box.
Semi-surreal abstract in my new Psychedelia style.
Permanent inks on 140lb cold pressed art paper.
Displayed unmounted - no border, work goes to the edge of the paper, size 1/2 imperial old money ( 15 x 22 inches ).
Original work, concept.
Prints in consideration.
This is an original impasto/textured painting where the Sunflowers are tangibly thick.
Completed in oils over an acrylic background and substrate on a box canvas ( mounting/framing not necessary ).
This piece, the subject of which is instantly recognisable and always appreciated will dominate and benefit from a featured position.
A simple but impressive statement piece which will always welcome new eyes if not similar conversation and be a welcome addition to any suitable wall/display of original art.
The size is significant being 150cm x 120cm ( 5ft x 4ft old money ).
Inspired by Van Gogh and based upon an initial water colour work by a colleague using knife and brush techniques over a multi-layered and partially visible under tones.
A true statement piece.
Just accept it
Just accept it
This is a large painting consisting over several layers of paint, acrylic and oil and oil pastels, partially impasto and constructed from recycled materials on a box frame. This piece which initially started off as message art with the words \"just accept it\" painted and re-painted in water colours over white emulsion and then gouache then acrylics onto to a dust sheet until all the fabric was saturated with a white background and the words once more washed out.
It was at this stage some 20 hours into the painting using water based media that I decided to turn the substrate into a full blown painting as the background was now capable of holding more layers of paint no longer being a fragile dust sheet.
I began to design the painting, inspired by Picasso, Cesar Manrique, Kandinsky, Klee and others with direct use of vibrant colours and forms usually expressed by 1950\'s abstract expressionist art and early Sixties fashion.
The painting took on both flow and conflict, distinct shapes with seemingly a distinct purpose and as it developed I changed the palette and media again using alkyd paints, oil paints and eventually oil pastels to complete this journey.
The abstract context reminded me in total of a psychedelic view upon a landscape, perhaps there are fish swimming in a sea beneath a mountain or something else that you or other may see.
It is what you want it to be and I, just accept it, a painting which took more than 100 hours and marks an unusual creation from recycled materials to a piece of established traditional form art.
I have invested my time, skill and sheer enjoyment of the process and hopefully you can appreciate it, like I do - now it is for genuine sale and I have reduced its price but not its value to attain this aim.
Because I am charged no commission to use this site, this is the most affordable you can purchase it direct from me, the painting is in Leeds in my possession and includes £40 UK mainland delivery.
Just accept it more ( acrylic )
Just accept it once more.
Based upon the two SOLD paintings of " Just accept it " 5ft x 4ft and " Just accept it too " 6ft x 2 ft box canvasses.
It is in oils and oils pastels with relief and slight impasto application over a heavily impregnated acrylic background containing the words " just accept it ".
The colours are vibrant, subtle, loud, fresh almost confrontational and distinctly abstract.
It is a Psychedelic/stylised interpretation of a traditional/abstract landscape done in a style which befits the era of an earlier stage in my art career around the late Sixties, early Seventies..a period in time many have forgotten., never experienced or hail back to with a fondness mainly tied to fashion not art.
This is real retro from a person who lived it.
This piece has over 100 hours of work invested into it and contains my passion. My work does not please everyone - the Buyer will just ' know ' that this is for them, of that I feel I can rest assured.
SO HOW DOES IT WORK? COMMISSION.
The oil painting " Just accept it too " was a commission based upon my initial oil painting called " Just accept it " which is now sold. Pictures shown.
My new client wanted a change of some colours and the lengthier format so we agreed upon 6ft x 2ft, which suited her lounge very well.
As one can see it is a very similar yet distinctly different in its presentation.
I am placing this resultant commission on line for viewing..this piece is also sold but if you would like to discuss something similar, we can do so.
My terms are usually 35% of agreed purchase price upfront ( non-returnable ) after we have agreed on the format and the commissioning of the piece. Working in oils takes a minimum of 3 months - 4 months.
Working in acrylics alone takes approx 6 weeks with options of enhancing the colours with oil pastels, alkyds etc.
This will all be discussed and options outlined, the physical time for painting is the same in one medium, more media takes more time and oils have to dry which takes up the majority of the time.
Material costs are covered within the deposit. A cancellation forfeits the deposit.
So if you like what you see and want to own an original painting, painted for you as you want, it being the next in this series ( we can title it differently of course ) then just think about or contact me.
Prices range from a minimum of £1800 - £3775 depending, ... single canvas., diptychs, triptychs, any format under 6ft wide and under 4ft in height.
Sizes larger start at £3775 but we can discuss everything.
Sure this is quite a statement piece and not for everyone but if you want to join a select group then you will be more than welcome.
Thank you for your interest.
