“Abstracted Sculptural Trees”, acrylic on canvas, 40 x 40 cm/15.7 x 15.7 in., 2021, was made shortly after I finished my previous painting, “Sculptural Trees” — both part of my Forest Series. I had been exploring the colours and forms of intertwining trees in my earlier work and I knew upon its completion that I wanted to continue developing that specific subject matter by focusing on one detail of the intertwining trees in a simplified and abstracted manner.
“Abstracted Sculptural Trees” depicts a close-up view of twisting trees in winter, inspired by a walk I took in the Belgian coastal town of De Haan. The lines and shapes of the trees and their branches are flattened and the colour patches are simplified, forgoing much of the detail I had included in my earlier painting. Light and dark greens, purples, and browns depict the earth and foliage against which the trees emerge. I have been exploring painting in solid colour patches, emphasizing shape, in small areas in earlier works. In “Abstracted Sculptural Trees” flattened and expansive colour and shape became my main focus.
