Earth, Waterfall & Reflection (Original, Signed and Framed)

Earth, Waterfall & Reflection (Original, Signed and Framed)

Media: Windsor and Newton Artists Watercolours | Windsor and Newton Designers Gouache

There's a type of fiction called Magic Realism. Many of you will have heard of it - nowadays it's often referred to a Speculative Fiction. I like it because it brings what seems otherworldly, fantastic or even supernatural in to a setting that is completely familiar.  The juxtaposition (don't you just love that word) is alluring because it draws you in to believing the impossible, possible.  

I choose as an artist and writer to believe there is something beyond what we can see, touch and feel.  What that is, I do not know - I don't need to, I just need to feel something more is there.  This painting is that 'feeling' - conjured from imagination I am trying to evoke a sense of real and unreal.  I am trying to combine abstract expressionism with impressionist landscape.

I now provide framing consultation for each original painting, the cost includes this bespoke service. (Though for international and UK shipping - where unable to collect from my gallery - there will be an additional cost).  I have a curated selection of 20 frames I work with that enhance with my work and colour palettes.  Obviously, if you'd like to frame the artwork yourself there will be a reduction in the list price.  If you have any questions please visit my contact page or click the 'Chat with us' button.
