Starting a new abstract painting

Its been over a year since I attempted a painting as large as this and I felt it had been too long so bought myself a canvas, came up with a few ideas what I wanted to create and started to paint.  It was quite therapeutic and I want to keep this side of me alive especially with most of my creativity now taking place in the digital realm painting has a more human and spiritual feel to it.

Abstract painting style

My style of painting is never aiming to be accurate as I feel with the advent of computers they have removed the need to be able to paint or draw accuaretly, computers and robots can do that perfectly anyway. Something that computers and robots will always lack is emotion and that is what seperates man from machine thus my style is an emotional response to an experience I have had in my life.

The concept

This painting is representative of a time when I didn’t really know where I was going and I felt frustrated, angry and incredibly lost in a world that seemed to be totally against me progressing to a place where I wanted to be.

I don’t want to give too much away in terms of the design of the painting at this stage but as it progresses over the next few days I will update you with some more information here on my blog so watch this space!
