Abstract – Experiments in Constructivism

Etude no1 feat Im

My latest work has been so very different to my usual approach to painting. After such a long break away from it it seemed natural to move to new ground rather than attempt to resurface in the same soil. I had been looking at Constructivism, particularly British Constructivist painters like Victor Pasmore and Kenneth
Martin.

My first attempt at putting paint to canvas was a study of shape, complimentary colour and third sectioning. ‘Etude’ french meaning study was usually referring to a musical composition designed for practice and not for public performance. This piece is part of an annual exhibition currently on show at Inkwell.

Painting:
Etude #1
Acrylic on canvas. 90 x90 cm
