What is meant by a personal painting? Unless the art connects with the viewer in an emotional sense it is just decoration at least for that person; others may connect of course. To make personal paintings the artist has to put themselves into the piece. That means the artist is painting something they feel personally - a passion - the stronger the passion the more emotive the painting. When abstract figures are used then the painting really can be powerful as we all relate to figures and if abstracted then we put our own interpretation into their form. That makes personal paintings very personal!
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.
