Red giant is an original acrylic on canvas abstract painting. Inspired by the colours of the solar system especially the gas clouds where stars are born. It was made using a spinning plate where paint is thrown into the centre of the canvas and centrifugual force enables the spread of the layers of acrylic to expand outwards. Red giant is part of a series of paintings started 10 years ago.
I am a Teignmouth based artist and live close to the ocean and Dartmoor. This proximity to the South West Coast and the wild untamed landscape of the moor with its the dark, star filled skies only found away from artificial light has influenced my recent work.
