Still Life #5 Painting

$1,500.00

The bold colors and precise lines of Still Life #5 grab our attention. The heavily textured black paint anchors the painting and is balanced by the dark, but softer, strokes on the top right corner. The softer edges are continued in the light blue tones that melt into the canvas. These soft edges are a sharp contrast to the harsh lines found in the painting’s black texture. Vivid primary colors also grab our attention in both the bottom right and top left corners. The lone secondary color is distinguished from the primary colors by its heavy texture.

From the artist: “With my still life series, I’m stripping back right to the senses by doing the figurative drawings ‘blind’ and in a single line style. Then adding my colours and mark making as I interpret the composition. There’s also symbolism added to the compositions, drawing on influences from 17th Century paintings.”

    Shakti Oil Painting

    , , ,

    Surashree Rabadia's vivid oil painting depicts Shakti, the concept of feminine energy and creation. The artist has chosen to personify Shakti as the female figure in the center of the painting. Subtle symbols stretch across the entire painting, while 5 main symbols grab our attention. A trident reminds us of Shiva's three roles as creator, destroyer, and preserver. Below the trident sits a vessel, which has multiple meanings ranging from an overflowing of good fortune to fertility. Strength anchors the painting and is shown through the ferociousness of the tiger. The tiger's power is balanced by the delicate blush-colored lotus flower representing beauty and purity. Lastly, the sound of a conch shell signifies the beginning, or creation, of an important event. Contrasting colors captivate the viewer and help us to understand the complexity of Shakti. Framed.

    Hanuman Rescuing Sita Painting

    , ,

    This captivating painting tells the story of Hanuman travelling to Lanka to rescue the kidnapped Sita. After being captured, tied, and set on fire, Hanuman escapes and sets fire to the city. Though unable to rescue Sita, Hanuman ensures her safety before fleeing the city.

    The central figure of this image is immediately identifiable. Hanuman's vivid red body jumps out at the viewer and is set upon a dark green forest. The angle of the trees shows us how high and fast Hanuman moves across the city. The top portion of the painting depicts the city of Lanka on fire. While the colors are just as bold as Hanuman, the imagery is more subtle to remind us that Hanuman is the focus of this piece. Framed.

Alex James Bastable, Still Life #5, 2020, acrylic and mixed media on linen, 23.5″ x 19.5″

Born in London, England, Alex Bastable studied art and design throughout school. He explores the still life genre through his contemporary perspective. Alex makes use of various techniques and takes inspiration from expressionism and color field painting. He often works through internal gestures, colliding color with form and figuration. By combining one or more objects of connotation on the canvas, he attempts to subtly capture the pleasant and grittier sides of life.
