Oil on canvas – this painting links with Elizabeth Bravo’s Old Man and my translation of her work with Old Man Walking?

Old Man
by Elizabeth Bravo

Ritornare in Toscana, dopo un periodo di quattro anni di raccolta di multiple fotografie e disegni. il lavoro ora succede in studio. La storia d’Italia, sia nell’arte o nell’architettura, è una presenza costante e un fattore importante per la nostra percezione del passato e per quanto sia rilevante nel nostro tempo. La luce e le ombre creano contrasti drammatici, le ombre formano sezioni e cornici dei paesaggi e li gioca contro il piano del quadro. La sfida è di trovare i colori per le aree chiare e scure delle tele.
This is my English version.
To be back in Tuscany, after a period of four years collecting drawings and multiple photographs. The work now is happening in the studio. The history of Italy is a constant presence and a major factor, our perception of the past, and how relevant it is to our time, whether art or architecture. The light and shadows create dramatic contrasts, using the shadows to crop and frame sections of the landscape and play them off against the picture plane. The challenge to find the colours for light and dark areas of the canvases.

    This is fascinating. Wonderfully modern.

  • Cameron thank you, I have mad moments when I start montaging ideas and this is what comes out. Line, shape inter play.

    This is a fascinating collage of memories— snippets of time and place, light and shadows.

  • Well that’s it exactly, each plane reflects a memory.
    I can still see where i was trying to get “Old Man” into the painting.

    I love the whole concept of this style of yours Richard. Sort of like, ‘time cubism’. Modern and enchanting time lapses frozen on a single canvas. :)

  • Brilliant ideas Eddy, thank you, I think shapes in time concept and me playing with the visual elements.

    fabulous overlays of time, memories and “being there”.
    Great interpretation.

  • Hi Anna it brings back happy memories, nothing like “being there”.
