My Negative Collection!

These are five paintings from my 'Negative' collection. They are acrylic on canvas and are quite large pieces, each canvas has been backed on to a larger white canvas to create a frame/border (this is not visible on the images above. This collection was inspired by the memories of someone who had lost a loved one and these were the most important places for them where they went and visited during this difficult time. These locations held alot of memories for this person sad and happy ones but I decided to paint these in a photo negative style to portray the feelings of loss and sadness which were the prominent feelings associated with these locations at the time. I felt painting these places in their true pallet would extract the mood and depth that was needed for this body of work.
