Jean Soyer
Red and Black Tornado Vertical Abstract Oil Painting

About the Item

This artwork really demonstrates Jean Soyer's skills. It features a red and black cone-shaped comb back and forth movement following the top-left to bottom right diagonal, on a black and red background. The choice of colors, their contrast and the composition already make a strong argument. Jean Soyer manages to keep the background demarcations visible below the foreground painting. Likewise, he is able to make the crossing comb movements either overwrite or merge. He also manages to make black lines emerge *perpendicularly* to the comb tracks, while following their movement. The comb bends renders very lightly, providing volume to the whole piece. The clever addition of red-orange painting adds depth. Last but not least, the heavy touch of impasto building up in the middle of the lower part of the canvas really brings balance to this amazing piece. It has in common with other works of the artist rich impasto and reliefs, with lots of matter. This painting is not framed. Jean Soyer does not name his works, but gives them a number. This item is listed as "E 108". Jean Soyer is a rising French artist, mostly influenced by Nicolas de Staël, Georges Mathieu and Fabienne Verdier.

  • Divide
    By Doug Freed
    Located in Tulsa, OK
    Divide by artist Doug Freed is a deep blue contemporary abstract landscape oil on canvas painting that measures 72 x 96 and is priced at $18,000. Doug Freed attempts to capture the mystical light found in natural atmospheric effects: the haze in the distance on humid summer days, the overcast gloom of winter skies, and the softness of landscape bathed in fog, and the quieting mood of approaching darkness. In his luminescent multi-paneled oil paintings Freed tries to find the gray area between traditional landscape painting and its abstraction into color fields. Artist Statement For nearly twenty years, I made non-objective grid structured paintings. I started to see references to landscape in these works. I've literalized those references by painting oil landscape vistas of horizons, clouds and bodies of water. These paintings consist of two or more vertical panels. Usually one panel is landscape imagery. The adjacent panels are often atmospheric voids with vestiges of recognizable landscapes. I try to capture the mystical light found in natural atmospheric effects: the haze in the distance on humid summer days, the overcast gloom of winter skies, and the softness of landscape bathed in fog, and the quieting mood of approaching darkness. My intent is to create paintings imbued with a meditative, spiritual presence suggesting issues about time and ecology. I do this by softly modulating color, tone and value. The color varies from quiet, monochromatic works to fully orchestrated chromatic ones. By blending from one hue to another I create color which makes its self gradually felt, weeping forth. In this manner, I create illusions of mysterious emanations of light, places where ones eyes and spirit are invited to linger. I try to imbue my work with a monumental presence, epic in both size and scope. I do this by orchestrating the separate elements of color, texture and structure into a harmonious whole. I seek a somewhat reductive image rich in value and contrast. The surface of the work is devoid of textural incidence. I don’t want anything to distract from the illusion of depth so I deny any marks which would hold the viewer on the surface of the painting. In my luminescent multi- paneled oil paintings I try to find the grey area between traditional landscape painting and its abstraction into color fields. The compositions are about ambiguities of form and void, foreground and background and surface and deep space. My roots lie in tonalism, color field painting and minimalism. However, my work contains an ever-present awareness of the dramatic use of light of the post-renaissance chiaroscurists. It combines a classical awareness of structure with a romantic use of color always in combination with a unique sense of ambiguity. My work continues in its evolution of style the search for an abstract means of probing the ambiguities of physical and spiritual experience of light, and its power to foster a more intense life of the spirit through profound emotional experience of form, color and composition.
