A truly striking and vibrant scene of a pair of roosters set within an expressive landscape dotted with trees and other animals. This painting has an exceptional three dimensional quality to it, with very thickly applied brightly coloured oils on the canvas. The artist has caked on the paint and has then shaped it, not using a brush, but with a palette and fingers. Here the artist has used the paint not simply to depict part of the picture, but to be part of the picture. These techniques are reminiscent of modernist artists such as Vincent Van Gogh, whose use of paint was often pronounced and dramatic, as is the case with this painting.
The scene taking place has much to offer, with other animals appearing in unexpected places. Every aspect of this picture has been given a life of its own – the swirls of the trees, the dynamic strokes of the sky, the comma like stabs of the grass. Wonderful contrasts of colour and different forms of paint applications lend a sense of depth, and create such an array of interesting features to notice.
This oil on stretched canvas is in excellent vintage condition. It is unframed but can be hung as is.
