Nouveau Star- Oil on canvas – 2020. This was the first painting I created for my Nouveau exhibition. It idepicts an imaginary diva goddess. I painted it from my imagination allowing the colours and forms to come together intuitively. Realism, the black curly designs in the corners of the painting I have copied from the classic decorative wrought iron cornices from the verandas along Lord street in Southport. This painting was inspired by the art nouveau movement particularly the Austrian artist, Klimt and and Koloman Moser whose decorative bold designs were significant. In this painting I have deviated slightly towards early Hollywood and brought the idea of early silent movie female film stars into this piece so it is a combination of inspirations. Nouveau my exhibition is now at The Art House in Southport, 65, Eastbank street. Open Tuesday to Friday, 10-3 and Saturday 11-4 until the 5th September!
