A Work in Progress?

Abstract Landscape. 14.

An Abstract work, acrylic on 300gsm paper, 50cm. x  70cm. It may be a work in progress, maybe not, I have not yet decided. This work was completed the day after I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, the 13th. March. Such an unlucky number, not that I am superstitious! As with my recent works, I painted intuitively; making a start then merely reponding to previous marks on the surface; continuing to what may be the end. At this stage it is usually time to reflect on the image; to interpret any meaning and to edit. This time it may simply be left as is; an indicator to a specific moment.

 

Author: David Carroll - Visual Artist

Born in 1947 in North Wales, David migrated to Australia in 1970 with his wife and children. He graduated from Southern Cross University, Lismore, NSW. with a Bachelors Degree of Visual Art (Honours). Davids artwork is inspired by memory; but rather than depict specific events, he reflects emotional situations, infused by present moments of recollection. In recent times, after being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, his work has taken a new and positive direction. His 'Elemental Representions" use colour, form and symbolic motifs, to create a personal visual story line.

  1. I love it. There is a lot going on in the individual parts, but they make a coherent whole. Like the body, or, maybe life’s journey. (I may be getting a little out there! But I felt a sense of harmony). I hope for the best as you face and deal with illness.
