Statues and Sculptures Paintings

Statues and Sculptures Paintings

I generally don’t like statues or sculptures. Even if I admit that many are admirably done, they simply don’t touch my heart. It is probably due to their three-dimensionality, this third dimension -compared to paintings- adding too much information and consequently cutting the wings of my imagination.
Having said that, when we were travelling through Italy in Spring 2011, I could not help admiring some of them, and my brain started converting them into paintings, taking away that additional, annoying spatial dimension and replacing it with colours! This is how and when I started the series presented in this gallery.
And since then, when I travel, I get more interested in the local statues, looking especially for their national characters. I have painted and will go on painting some of them, the ones which speak to me a little louder than the others without forcing their “words” on me.
I am not focussing especially on marble or any noble material, because what I do like in statues and sculptures is the material of which they are made: stone, metal, wood, sand, plaster, clay, plastic, garbage, snow: all look great in a painting!

 

These statue and sculpture paintings, and many others, are available directly online as Giclee print in many different dimensions, on paper, canvas or metal, and also as greeting cards.
