That Certain Feeling



paintings with feeling -unique minimal art - thin red line

I want to put emotion in art. I endeavor to create visible feelings to express what 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... 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  minimalism. The artist is driven by the desire to get emotion in art.

He uses space and symbols to express inner feelings that 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

from the blog

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 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.
