Acrylic Painting on Canvas, 2009
Size (H x W): 20" x 16"
This work is a re-imagining of "Houses at L'Estaque", an oil painting by Georges Braque (1908) considered the first "Cubist landscape" (following derisory acclaim).
L'Estaque is a fisherman’s village in the surroundings of Marseille and is well-known for its fabulous landscapes celebrated by the French painter Paul Cézanne. In my version summer heat of the original is transformed to a winter scene.
With further development of a stylised approach to landscape and another opportunity to play with perspective and repetition of geometric 3D shapes I was transported to an early art class with Philippe Nolle. Outlining makes the colours pop and helps the contrasts including hot and cold. It's certainly chillier at the top.
