Recovery - Mixed mediums on canvas.

I really like your work, and not just this one. You use interesting colors and combine them in an exceptional way. I love your sense of symmetry and balance...

many thanks Milena, i think it's a kind of non-symmetrical symmetry if that makes any sense.

the contrast works very well for these two pieces .

even if every one by itself is beautiful , their juxtaposition makes them far more interesting. :clap:

Je ne sais pas pourquoi mais j'ai directement penser à Klimt... les formes géométriques, le fond chargé, les couleurs...
Très très beau =)

i've gotta say, i enjoy looking at your paintings waaay more than your digital work. i think it's 'cause i can see how much touch and handling happens with the canvas pieces versus the digital pieces.
your style is so interesting (in the good way--not in the "oh... this is really... uhh... interesting" way) and i love the colors you work with! i'd love to hold both of these and look, instead of over the internet. they're lovely!!

i dont know quite what to say..
i really really enjoy look at this.
something about the way the two sides compliment eachothers differences and the colours, or even the attention to detail and the surreal feeling of it all.

basically an instant fav, great work!

This is nice, Miles. I like the contrasting palettes, and the way it reflects the title.

miles-tebbutt Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2009
Recovery was a significant title in more ways than one. the left panel has collage elements (the little squares, these are cut from two earlier oil canvases, early attempts at painting that went wrong, so they certainly made a recovery! the right panel was meant to represent that feeling of mild depression and uncertainty that come with illness and the left was meant to represent the feeling of elation when rising from your hospital bed knowing that things are on the up. When seen in the flesh the squigly part (top left) is very golden, i used a flaked gold to get it really shiny!

It's great when pieces work at all those levels--recovering pieces of the earlier paintings, personal recovery. There's certainly a feeling of rising up on the left, with the little wings and the gold. I'm picturing it much brighter, thanks to your description!
