State of Being Alphabet Series 2014 -

State of Being Alphabet Series

This project is one of discovery for me as an artist.
Trialing different techniques and abstract compositions it is my way of growing and understanding my style and voice. I decided that a series of paintings would show not primarily cohesion but a visual road map of my journey.
I had an idea to try and portray feelings and "states of being" as a human in an abstract way by focusing on colours and textures (with the occasional realistic reference).
Strange and beautiful words fascinate me and I set out to read the dictionary to find words that describe a "state of being", a psychological state or a way of acting in a certain way as a starting point for my paintings.
They are all oil on canvas, 12x16 inches (30.5 x 40cm) by 1.5 inches thick.


Some of the original art pieces are available in the online store and there are Limited Edition prints in A4 and A3 size for each painting.
