Aberdaron beach, North Wales, August 2009
I am exploring the link between traditional painting and self expression using digital art.
The exaggerated pixels play an important part, breaking the subject down into basic form. Creating a style of Digital Cubism and Pointillism making the composition an essential part of the work. I was once told Art is an indulgence in self expression, and that is very true here - the landscapes and beachscapes are a visual diary created during a summer where I captured what I saw and the digital paintings shown reflect that time in my life.
Influences: J.M.W.Turner, Valette, Lowry, Mondrian, Picasso, Rothko, Hockney.
Art Movements: Impressionism, De Stijl, Futurism, Cubism, Modernism.
Also British painter David Hockneys book: "Secret Knowledge" Has played an import part in my work as well as his recent digital work accepting it as a new medium for creating art in the form of digital paintings.
