kevin turton artistcontemporary abstracted landscapes

information | about my work
My latest work is influenced by the wild north coast of Norfolk, showing elements or the wider landscape in a unique contemporary abstracted style. My paintings are produced on 38mm deep block canvas, edged and ready to hang

starts by 'painting' with textures, using different acrylic pastes which are layered over each other to build up the sculptural base on which I then work. Colour is introduced using many layers of transparent pigment as washes, pours, scumbling… I also introduce subtle highlights of interference medium and metallics which creates changes in colour and hue when viewed from different angles, simulating the changes of light one would observe when viewing an actual landscape. Many types of clear acrylic gel are also employed. These may be poured, splashed, textured, tinted or inter-layered with further transparent pigment, interference or metallics which further reflects and refracts light from different angles to enhance the illusion of 'being there' passing through the landscape.

I also hope to challenge the viewer to put their own interpretation on each painting, making it more personal to them, whilst increasing their awareness of the natural beauty around them - I hope you find them interesting
