The sensuality of paint


by Amad Eslami
In my paintings, I am interested in relationships between colors and use them to express basic human emotions, or tragedy, doom and ecstasy. I believe that more can be described visually in a single gesture than in a novel. I try to capitalize on this power, capture the eternal truth that holds us all, tie them up and put them into my paintings. I believe that art comes from within, from profound experiences, memories, other art and longings. However, the inspiration for my paintings also comes from nature, the human figure, and the landscape. I am deeply influenced by the environment in which I live. My process usually begins with a spontaneous and intuitive approach. I have always been drawn to the mystery of the process of making a painting, more than recreating a fixed image or subject. When the elements of color, composition and brushwork start to come together, that's when the real interest begins... Art involves the senses of touch, taste, sound, smell and sight. Even the sound of pencil applied to paper, the feel of brush in hand and the sensuality of paint inspire me to create >>>


Your passion for colour certainly comes across

Thanks for posting.

They remind me of early Kandinsky before he went more abstract.

Very good work indeed. Appears to be much inspired by the work of painters such as David Park, Richard Deibenkorn and Elmer Bischoff of Northern California....roughly around 1950-65.
