Spine, Dex Hannon
My work is influenced by the music I listen to as I work. My art is best described as abstract expressionism, although I also work with digital painting and sound, the choice of medium is influenced by the message I am trying to convey.
Predominantly using contrast, through mixing of styles, techniques and bold colour choices I creates a battle for the viewers’ attention. Painting ‘alla prima’ mixing the oils or acrylics directly on the canvas surface, working fast in rapid strokes, letting the freedom of the moment and sounds influence my movements.
This style of working is intense, and always filled with the danger that one stroke too far and the painting is lost.
