A calm quiet space is created in this abstract desert art inspired by the Arizona desert and flying. The paintings here can take you to that deserted restful place. Feel the undisturbed emptiness of the desert.
I paint solitude, that beautiful feeling when you are alone and undisturbed by choice. Man’s intrusion into these beautiful places disturbs me but it is also intriguing to see the patterns of roads and railways. The desert is one of my subjects and I travel to New Mexico and Arizona regularly. I am inspired by the quiet friendly towns dotted between vast open spaces, a wonderful place to be.
The journey from Phoenix to Taos via Santa Fe is one of my particular pleasures; I travel it most years on my way to paint with my artist friends. When I arrive I have more inspiration than I need and work at creating the feelings I have experienced when travelling. It is mostly a “peaceful easy feeling” and now understand how the Eagles song was inspired. I hope you enjoy the paintings too … Alan
is the goal for every painting by Alan Brain. It is made visible through the artist's use of colour (sometimes bold, other times muted but always vibrant); and unusual geometric shapes triggered by realism from the artist's imagination. The emotion in the artwork is there for the viewer to engage with and interpret in their own way. Most of the paintings are in watercolour, some are in acrylic, others use both. The artist will use anything however to create that certain feeling in his artwork.
