Context and Inspiration

“Orange Sun” is a work produced in 2022. This painting captures a graphic seascape, where bright colors and abstract shapes create a contemporary and captivating atmosphere. Inspired by starry nights and the beauty of the sea under the moon, I use a palette of blue, black and orange to evoke a scene that is both realistic and abstract.

Visual Description

The painting presents a seascape with graphic elements. A large orange moon stands out against a bright white sky, creating a striking contrast. The black and blue sailboats add depth and dynamism to the composition. The reflections on the water are rendered with precise knife strokes, adding texture and dimension to the work.

Painting Techniques and Materials

I use the knife painting technique to apply oil to the canvas, creating rich and dynamic textures. Bright colors and abstract shapes give the work a special depth and luminosity.

Thematic Analysis

“Soleil Orange” explores themes of natural beauty, tranquility and modernity. The graphic shapes and contrasting colors symbolize the duality and harmony between nature and abstraction, inviting the viewer to lose themselves in the scene and dream of distant and beautiful places.
