Contour #137 is an abstract landscape painting : The base of the composition is a topographic field, defined with contour lines and divided into segments by code and pattern. Each layer of colour, depth and form contributes to the final complexity of the canvas.
The piece is currently on show at “Tower 42” in London. The location is wonderfully appropriate for a painting about urban machinery.
Work-in-progress photos from the studio. This piece began as a big block of birch plywood.
90% of the hard work gets painted over before the piece even gets hung upright.
