Wild Iris Field, oil and acrylic on canvas, 231 x 139 cm A twisted array of iris and daisies dance in a wind-blown field, a wild beauty, fragile yet defiant and strong. Crooked stalks and creeping tendrils competing for sunlight and adoration with delicate blooms. Divine in its wildness, graceful in its beauty. A forgotten field. This painting is an exploration of contrasts. With an element of abstract expressionism and incorporating realism the painting displays how different artistic styles from opposing ends of a spectrum can be unified. Beautiful vivid blue iris are set against a wild expressionistic landscape, savage and raw, delicate and graceful, the contrast is beguiling.
