Context and Inspiration

“Gold” is a work created in 2023. This contemporary and modern painting explores graphic patterns using marine and architectural elements. I play with colors, shapes and textures to create a vibrant and evocative composition.

Visual Description

The painting presents an abstract composition with shapes evoking boats and architectural structures, dominated by the color gold. The black background highlights the gold and gray elements, creating a striking and dynamic contrast. Knife strokes add texture and depth, while white paint splatters add a touch of energy and movement.

Painting Techniques and Materials

I use the knife painting technique to apply oil to the canvas, creating rich and complex textures. The colors gold, gray and black are skillfully mixed to give an impression of light and depth, reinforcing the graphic and contemporary character of the work.

Thematic Analysis

“Or” explores themes of modernity, structure and movement. The shapes evoke boats and architectural elements, symbolizing the connection between nature and human creation. The color palette and bold use of graphic shapes invite the viewer to reflect on the harmony between these two worlds.
