Hard-edge painting.

“Hard-edge painting” with oils is quite a challenge.

Here are my latest modified hard-edge paintings:

Portal to Eternity, No. 1 (Oil on canvas).

Portal to Eternity, No. 2 (Oil on canvas).

Portal to Eternity, No. 3, oil on canvas, 55 x 46 cm.

The striving for characteristic perfectly-straight lines and sharp, crisp angles is one thing, but “perfection” is never achieved without planned imperfections. Sometimes achieving hard edges is an end in itself, while at other times it is just the beginning … to be followed by blurring, softening and other modifications where desired. Here I also chose swirling paint-strokes and “vibrating” colours through overpainting to soften the graphic art look. Adding ever-so-slight softening “imperfections” in a couple of places accentuates the overall humanity of the cold images, and intensifies the desire to journey through the painting.

Note from artist:

Painting in imperfections is both a struggle and a victory!
