Bruce Earles

This series of works has developed out of previously explored concepts such as anonymity, urban existence and harmony that can exist between industry and leisure. These expanded images maintain the subject matter of human development and natural surroundings. Work and fun are still presented but humans no longer dominate whereas animals, birds and plants begin to permeate the compositions. As the images have expanded, the spaces between have diminished leaving birds, fish, ships and planes to protrude beyond the boundaries of the canvas. Each image demands its own space interlocking with others in an interrelated composition. The multi angle viewpoint has allowed free expression of images within the space. The strength of colour and tones combined with the diversity of line complements the various textures. A move away from opacity to a more expanded use of transparencies has allowed the medium of oil paint to maximize its effect. Rather than analyze and synthesize the landscape these works are based on interpretation and expression.
