120 x 100 cm
Abstract Expressionism, by artist Gustaf Tidholm.
Nr 6, in the Archipelago serie.
I want to inspire the viewer and give a feeling of sea, wind, grass, soil, rust, consisting of pale colors and tones that, like at sea. The open views has a calming effect at us, and we can see there is no end, its just new adventures ahead.
Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin. Live life and let life live with you.
I want the colors and the environment in this motif to invite calm and curiosity. it can storm in your life, just like the water hitting the rocks in the foreground of the subject, but venture out to the tranquility out there, where you let go of the noise and the tranquility of the open sea gives you a path in whatever direction you want.
A mixture of white, blue, green, gray and brown, colors. Acrylic art at stretched canvas.
Gustaf Tidholm paints abstract expressionist art with acrylics at canvas.
With his artworks he wishes you to experience joy, hope, happiness, power, inspiration, peace and faith that everything will be alright.
The joy of painting is to get the inspiration throughout the process. It is a perfect form of meditation. Very often he have an intention with the idea from the beginning on paper, which eventually turns out into something complete different when the artwork is finished. That is the pure joy of letting the spirit lands in the artwork. To let the expression became honest and real at the final complete artwork.
