Forgotten Treasures

Description : A fun abstract painting of old childhood playthings that might have been stored away in a box. Growing up we had a lot of homemade toys and found objects from the garden, the beach, my father's workshop and just scavenged. No electronics or sophisticated toys as children tend to have today. This artwork is framed in a simple, raw framed and has d-rings and wire ready to hang. The artist surname is on the front, signature on the back and a signed Certificate of Authenticity is provided. Enjoy!

I am an artist based in Brisbane, Australia working primarily in acrylic. As a self-taught artist I enjoy challenging myself and experimenting with different ideas and subject matters exploring the boundless possibilities of this versatile medium. My subject matter varies from expressionist to impressionist to just strange ideas and concepts depending on whatever pops into my head.    

I love colours and always start by choosing my initial set.    These are generally a minimalist palette but then mixing them together gives more variety.  My art is original and hand-painted using a variety of tools such as brushes, scrapers, palette knives, fingers and sponges etc. so brush strokes are to be expected.  If you are very lucky you might find a rare stray brush hair embedded in the paint :-)   I am also not a particular fan of straight even lines although I do some geometric abstraction works from time to time.   I believe small imperfections add to the originality of a work.

My influences are mostly from the stunning abstract expressionist works of the mid-20th century which have such a feeling of raw intensity. However I also love abstracted and moody impressionist landscapes and I see no conflict between such diverse styles. While I sometimes use reference photos or materials, these really are just a starting point as once I commence I tend to forget about them and just get carried away in the painting. I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enoy making it.
