About the artworkPush is a purely abstract painting . It is trying to convey the sense of the conflicting energies between positive and negative . The strength of the dark shape on the right is both seductive and repellent , this in turn creates the flame or current of the vertical stripes to the left of the painting . The energy in the oasinting can be left to the spectator to determine a more personal response.Size: H 102cm x W 102cmSold unframed
Whilst working on the edge of both intellect and vision, Deborah still permits the paint to develop its own identity within her paintings. Since her first emergence in the 1990â€™s Deborah Lanyonâ€™s practice has taken a slight turn in direction over the last couple of years, inspired by time spent in Italy, Slovenia, France and England. Her travels have allowed her to absorb the culture and landscapes through which she has passed, not only visually, but through all her senses: sound, smell, taste and touch. Sometimes smaller works are created in situ and then transported home to act as further visual stimuli for the larger works, which are mostly painted from collective memory.
Embracing this lapse of time between first seeing a place/space â€“ when and where it was â€“ to the moment when the painting is realised, allows her to digest and synthesize ideas over time. It is by no chance then, that Deborahâ€™s paintings seem somehow to remain in the first moment â€“ always fresh, energetic and truly alive.
