That Certain Feeling

 

 

geometric abstraction with quiet minimal shapes

I make art with passion to create visible feelings that cannot be expressed in words.

To create paintings with feeling is my goal.  There are probably no words to describe the emotion in the art but it is there for sure... paintings with that certain feeling.

My biggest complement is to hear "I love it but I don't know why." That tells me the viewer has made an emotional connection that is their own personal interpretation.

about the artist

Self-taught artist whose work has developed through geometric abstraction to surrealism and is now  painting minimalism. The artist is driven by the desire to get passion, a strong feeling into his art.

He uses space and symbols to express inner feelings that connect with and intrigue the viewer.

Through the years of painting the artist's work has evolved and several distinct approaches are evident now, such as...

 surreal art  which is a fairly new experience. The combination of real and imaginary shapes with strong colours is appealing and a powerful way to create emotion in art.

Geometric art  emerged early, the artist clearly has a penchant for rectangles and other geometric shapes.

Minimalism has been a theme throughout the artist's work and predominates now. Saying more with less is a particular goal.

No artist's journey would be complete without figure work, Alan quickly abstracted the figures to portray the body language in his art.

Several powerful series have emerged each one related to the nature of the artist - such as aviation art  (Alan is a pilot) and strong reactions to war and the pollution of our planet. There are more to come and each one will be an original abstract painting

I have been painting for 25 years since I gave it a try at a night class. I was hooked and I haven't stopped making art with passion since. The desire to make paintings with feeling came later and then getting emotion in art became my goal. It still is.

My art has been exhibited widely within the UK including the Royal Watercolour Society and  internationally with leading societies such as The American Watercolor Society and The Canadian Society for Painters in Watercolour.

I use watercolour but do not consider myself a traditional watercolourist as I am not concerned about transparency.

I was inspired to make art with passion and to put feeling into paintings after an art tutor said to me "Don't be concerned with does it look right ask yourself does it feel right?". That set me free from realism and I soon became interested in abstraction (most every artist starts with realistic paintings and moves towards abstraction).

I found that for me an abstract painting without passion or feeling is decorative and has no lasting interest. I was lucky another tutor told me to "Find my passion!" After a while I understood that he meant find and paint something you feel strongly about. I did and I have been painting my passions ever since.
