FROM DOOR TO DOOR TO ART





STROLLING THROUGH A VILLAGE AND PURE WONDER.





With the family, we were in England this summer. Not that I expected the whole country to be sleek and tidy but that the contrast between rich and poor would be as great and visible as in France, I did not expect.




Wandering around towns and villages and marvelling unprepared at the use of colour in facades and window frames is something I was brought up on from an early age. Even now, I still can't get enough of it. So even in England I found I could indulge in plenty of impoverished façades!


Such a buzzing colour surface of a door hundreds of years old can capture my attention immensely. The elements that have eaten in, wear and tear, signs of use from generations form a unique texture. So you get the most beautiful visual storylines in colour gradients and surface contrasts that the light plays with. These are gems of inspiration for me. I experiment more and more with colour and the finds spur me to turn the pallet into abstract paintings.

ROSS-ON-WYE NO.1, OIL ON CANVAS, 60 x 100 CM

This abstract work was created recently this year and is based on a colour combination I came across on a façade in the village of Ross-on-Wye. This village had incredible colour combinations on both old and younger architecture. I was able to lose myself in it for days while the ladies took inspiration from clothes shops.





Coming soon, you can expect more from this Ross-on-Wye series. If you want to stay updated, take a look here from time to time or subscribe to the newsletter at the bottom.
