I am delighted to be featured by Rise Art Gallery in article 'Five Artists as Funky as Fauves'

Fauves was a loose group of early twentieth-century artist also called 'the wild beasts'.

 

 

One of my favourite artist Henri Matisse was among others creator of the group whose members shared the use of intense colour as a vehicle for describing light and space, and who redefined pure colour and form as means of communicating the artist's emotional state.The paintings of the Fauves were characterised by seemingly wild brush work and strident colours  while their subject matter had a high degree of simplification and abstract.

 

After many years being afraid of colour now I am absolutely in love with boldly coloured canvases affirmation reflections of colour is something I cherish

 

 

 

 

 

"Artists can colour the sky red because they know it's blue. Those of us who aren't artists must colour things the way they really are or people might think we're stupid." - Jules Feiffer
