about alan brain contemporary artist and teacher

Hi! I am Alan Brain, contemporary artist and teacher ,I just love to paint. It is what I do and who I am. I want to make visible through my work that “certain feeling”. It is an emotion that I cannot express in words, that is why I paint, otherwise I would have been a writer :)

Alan Brain contemporary artist and teacher Surrey UK

Through my art I explore how I feel about what I see. I use my imagination to build shapes and colours that will express the emotion visibly. It is my passion. I often surprise myself and sometimes scare myself but it is never dull. I like the extremes and I have no place for mediocrity – Life is too Short!

"...powerful different abstract feelings paintings to make you pause and wonder... "

 The feeling or emotion in the painting is always personal and words may not be enough to express it in full or at all. To me painting is a powerful way to communicate which can exceed my vocabulary. I create visible feelings that cannot be described properly with words. My art has been described as calming, quiet, still, mysterious, uplifting, disturbing, imaginative, powerful, dreamlike, enigmatic, unusual and intriguing; but it is up to you to decide. I want you to connect with my art and make your own interpretation, to have the art communicate with you personally

Why abstract? … Some paintings, usually called figurative, describe something. They usually remind us of places we have seen or people we have known.  Other paintings we call abstracts, do not necessarily convey a recognisable image and can be interpreted in any way. A lot are a collection of shapes, colours, texture and lines that make a pleasing painting but somehow lack substance. Others get right to the heart of our emotions; they can create a distinct feeling within ourselves. This artwork draws us and converses with us, it is personal, we are interpreting it in our own way. It does not happen for every abstract painting we ever view, only a few paintings seriously engage anyone. And of course some figurative art is also engaging but usually for reasons that are more clearly understandable.

I paint abstract paintings with a powerful emotion. Some may call it a semi abstract painting but who cares what it is called? My only objective is to capture a feeling that engages you, intrigues you, mystifies you and makes you think. To do this I will paint anything in any way, at the moment it is coming out as abstract or semi abstract art. 

I paint what seriously interests me such as body language, the connection (or not) between people is intriguing as is a solo figure whose stance says everything about them. This is truly fascinating to me.You can see some examples in my page abstract figure paintings. Flying, aviation has been a passion for all my life and it appears in my artwork unconsciously sometimes, here are some examples of my abstract aviation art I love solitude and have painted it for years now, the desert personifies solitude for me and I have spent time in remote places in Arizona and New Mexico, here are some examples of my abstract desert art. More recently my feelings about war in general and world war one in particular have inspired me to paint my own comments on conflict. My war series is underway
