Classical Sculptures Art
“Moonlight is sculpture; sunlight is painting.”
~ Nathaniel Hawthorne
Some of my recent paintings have changed direction after ten years experience painting mainly animals. I have reached the blissful and fulfilling transition towards this alluring style of work. Classical sculptures embody emotions for many people, they touch on deep feelings and profound understanding. I am really looking forward to explore further into this subject with my oil painting techniques.
When I visited Holland around five years ago with my family, I picked up the inspiration of my painting 'The Inner Balance' during a tour of the Rusk Museum. I was enchanted by this sculpture ~ ' L'Amour Menacant ' by Falconet, and brought home a postcard of the statue.
Being my Mother's favourite subject, I was roused to pick up my brushes and expand my new style of Classical Paintings, as my dear Mother never explored this mode of expression on this topic that she held so dear.
I endeavour for the titles of my work to have profound meaning and yet the leniency of open interpretation for its audience. Following my previous painting 'Forgiveness', I required a similarly suitable name for this composition of the cherub that would capture the innocence of a child and yet equivocation of expression carved on this sculptures face. 'Inner Balance' established the desired notion of this painting.
The inborn passion I have for this subject is translated through the anthropological realism in fine details, capturing the nuances of my subjects with verve.
