@shahin, I'm a complete novice... trying to learn. Your work is breathtaking.
I am fascinated with this and other of your recent works posted on the forum in which you seem to have deconstructed or broken particular edges, usually ones which are less focal. These often involve strokes which cross out or interrupt the edge but retain contrast, sometimes pulling in the adjacent area and sometimes pulling in remote colors from less adjacent areas or objects. Interestingly, these features retain enough immediacy and hence contribute a certain amount of interest in the work, which edge control through blending would not have achieved (such blending can render those areas into complete obscurity). Your technique successfully attenuates one kind of focus (at least one kind of my mind), one of form and object, while heightening another, namely my more abstract sense of color, texture, and contrast. And sometimes the colors tie the work together as well when they speak of areas farther away or reference the color of the forms or objects of focus.
I find it immensely wonderful, and helps make the every bit of the entire piece contribute to the whole.
This is what your work does for my eyes.
So now coms to my question as my eyes have nothing to do with your art: What is your reason as the artist for breaking up the edges the particular way you do? How much of it is purposeful or planned, and how much of it is based on instinct? Do have a philosophy or insights regarding the interruption of edge you could share?
Once again, breathtaking work.
@shahin Thank you for responding so quickly.
Thank you for complimenting me on my use of language. I was describing what I saw and experienced. At most, I am an observant novice who has read more about art than I have produced.
It pleases me to know that you have an itch for a technique, which you are successfully executing in your work.
Stay well and good painting!
