A skilfully executed mid century abstract painted in oil onto board. It features a combination of broad brushwork and fluid paint applied both thinly and thickly, creating differing textures and overlays.
Despite its abstract nature, the colour palette and composition could allude to the natural landscape of a coastal scene. The top section of the painting, with its blues and whites, could represent the sea, and the sandy tones of brown, beige, white and black could also be an abstraction of the shoreline. Although we will never know the artist’s source of inspiration or whether or not he intended to represent anything tangible, it is a wonderful process of imagination and freedom to be able to draw our own conclusions and visualise our own personal connections to a particular composition.
This mid century oil is reminiscent of the abstract expressionist works by the artist William de Kooning, whose painting style came to be known as ‘action panting’.
It is housed in a light wood frame, which complements it perfectly. Both painting and frame are in excellent vintage condition.
Size: 37 x 47 cm (including frame)
