The Passage of Time: featured painting

The Passage of Time

The featured painting explores mediaeval colours and what abstract paintings might have looked like 500 years ago. If you look at the drop down menu under the ART tab, you’ll see other examples of this exploration.

This painting interprets the wonderful abstracted backgrounds painters of the period imagined. It goes without saying that there is Malevich, here, too.

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, but is a composite of the remembered, fragmented and forgotten.

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