Abstract Vector Impressionism
Using photographs as a source of inspiration for my paintings is becoming more interesting as I introduce technology into the equation. I am beginning to see ideas come to fruition in ways I never thought possible. Artificial Intelligence apps. take you on a weird and wonderful journey into a world of convoluted shapes and colours.
My subject matter is anything and everything, landscape, wildlife, still life or portraits, anything that stimulates my mind. I see an image or an object and think about what it would look like if I changed its whole aspect. My inspiration comes from the Internet, my own or friends' photographs or objects I may find interesting.
The process from the first concept to the final painting is time-consuming. I use my computer and various programmes including, at times, the artificial intelligence app, to turn my images/ideas into abstract vector shapes, I then exaggerate the colours in the image to see how they would look like in an impressionist painting…and this is before I get to work on it as the artist using artist oil paints on Belgium Linen canvas. This process does not always work out, and I may have to rework the concept or rethink the whole process.
Abstract Vector Impressionism has made me rethink my approach to painting, by removing emotional restraints that have stood in my way for years, I am able to be more adventurous in my approach to my painting and as a result, I am connecting more with my audience. Welcome to my world of Abstract Vector Impressionism.
