Figurative Abstract (untitled – 1


Figurative Abstract (untitled 1). Acrylic on canvas, 50cm. x 70cm.

Using spontaneous and intuitave responses to personal emotions, this painting again references Parkinson’s.  My use of vivid colours is a rebellious statement that rails against what could easily be a depressive disease. The tottering figure, mimics the unstable walk and freezing of gait, that makes venturing out alone a precarious business for many.

‘Its a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door.”  “You step into the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no telling where you might be swept off to.”  (Bilbo  Baggins – The Fellowship of the Ring.)

Keep smiling, Cheers, Dave.

    I love this. And for some reason it fits how I felt after the several eye operations I had in 2014-2016 and still have some effects from today. Some things have to be filled in and I hope I make good guesses, but keeping on going is what counts. And this beautiful life-affirming image reminds me of how good it is that I am still moving and seeing, no matter how I am doing it. Wow. Just a beautiful picture, and encouraging. Thank you.

      Thank you for the lovely comments Claudia, I am so pleased that my work is able to communicate that which is sometimes difficult to put into words. Best regards, Dave.
