A collection of abstract landscape paintings by Amiria Gale.
This is a series of work entitled ‘Madness: the roar of the human brain.’ These paintings tell of discontent and a grass that is never green. They tell of blindness and the ball of dialogue behind our eyes. They tell of falsity and lament: the never-good-enoughs and one-day-everything-will-be-okays. They tell of tomorrow, yesterdays and the present we give away.
These abstract paintings draw upon the visual language of coastal landscapes and shell paintings: blue abstract artworks, filled with swirling forms, deep contrast and horizontal and vertical lines. The painting above was completed over a textured ground of dripped house paint. This artwork is entitled ‘Walk away’ and is 390 x 580mm, completed in 2005. Sold privately.
The abstract paintings above have been handcrafted using Atelier acrylic paint and a range of mixed mediums including gesso, modelling compound, textured paper, pencil, ink, found paper/card based materials and varnish. Most paintings have a very tactile surface. They have almost all been painted on MDF and pine artist boards.
