Emotional expressive abstract paintings – Silhouettes

I went deeper into the hidden spaces of undisclosed feelings. Deep emotional characteristics of human beings behind a wall of not knowing and not be seen. What can come up if you look behind? Perhaps you can not really look behind and thus it stays hidden. I went into theme of ‘Silhouettes’ deeper, to discover for myself the underlying emotions. With my drawings I exposed myself to it. With expressive layering of color and broad brushstrokes, sometimes rather splashing, I slowly uncovered the expression being. Here you can see two from the ongoing serie.

Juried exhibition – Silhouettes

I participated this month to the ‘Silhouettes’ show

with Linues Galleries.Art Contest Call for Entries Silhouettes




As described:

 ‘Silhouettes create a striking contrast between the subject and its environment.  They can be very informative, reveal a teasing amount of detail or communicate complete anonymity; in all cases, leaving the viewer intrigued.’

Here is one of the paintings I submitted:
