Touch Me 9
Touch Me Collection - Painting 9 - Purple & Brown
91x31cm Oil on Canvas
The most energetic, strange and dynamic of the series of abstract oil paintings in the Touch Me series.
The series emerged during the 2020 lockdown, quite spontaneously, after seeing the work of Chaim Soutine and Helen Frankenthaler, both of whom are bold, expressive artists. This resulted in a challenge to be more daring and expressive.
The bold combination of brown, purple and teal demands a strong location for displaying the work and confidence in the viewer.
