The featured painting illustrates old colours and abstraction perhaps 500 years ago if the artists of the day had pushed their perceptions to that end. If you look at the drop down menu under the ART tab, you’ll see other examples of this exploration.

the passage of time

This painting explores the wonderful abstracted backgrounds painters of the period imagined and also draws on the work of Malevich.

The “Passage of Time” has a fluidity to it, but it is also chunked; while we experience time relatively ‘smoothly’ and perhaps at times passing too quickly, we remember the passage of time discretely, as events and a real sense of before and after. It is not fluid when remembered. There is also a particular take on perspective of the alignment of the squares, too.

It is acrylic on canvas, 70 cm x 100 cm. Painted using a knife.
