Different aviation Picture - Glide Slope

 

 

My paintings of war continue (click here to see the series so far) and a selection of them was exhibited at The Crypt Gallery in London...

 

It was damp, gloomy in parts, a little cold and I swear haunted - the natural home for artwork on death.

 

 

 

 Click Here to see images of the exhibition at The Crypt Gallery earlier this year.

 

The curator Adelinda Allegretti, is planning a similar event in 2016 and I will be organising an exhibition to commemorate the Battle of the Somme anniversary in July 2016, one hundred years on from the worst military campaign this country has ever undertaken.

My paintings over the last few months have been driven as usual by strong emotion.  A phrase I heard recently really resonated...

 

"Representational paintings without passion are descriptive, abstract paintings without passion are decorative"

 

with the punch line...

 

And It Shows!

 

 

Here is some of my recent artwork...

 

 

 

The Power of Yellow

 

Yellow is considered a weak colour when compared to say reds oranges and blues, it is not necessarily true but a good challenge to an artist to get true emotion in predominantly yellow paintings. Click on the image to see examples...

Symbols

 

Using symbols in a painting can be a very powerful (or misleading) way to make your message. In these I used an abstracted bird... click on the image below for examples...

Very Recent 

 

And a collection of very recent paintings. I have just been painting with friends in Maryland and maybe something shifted my art some...
