Friends walking together along the beach at dusk. Kicking up the dry sand as they make their way down to the water. There are crabs digging their holes, seagulls screeching their last call of the day. Shells, crushed by the waves and time lie scattered along their tidal lines. Friends together, some closer perhaps than others. But all the same, a walk at dusk on the beach, as the sun sets, the colours light up the sky, the ocean and the air.
This painting is about the closeness of our friends and family, when we come together and experience the elements of nature that captivate and stimulate our senses. These are the moments that we remember, that become part of our souls.
In new work for 2019, I continue to explore the gestures and stances of people. How they convey their emotions, conversations, intensity through the stance and gestures. These are painted using broad brush strokes in a semi-abstract way. There is not much detail in the actual people of these paintings and it’s not necessary because you can read them from their body language, their shapes, the angle of the head.
