Nicolas Stael was a Russian born artist (1914-1955) whose work left a vivid imprint on subsequent European art, particularly in the field of non-geometric abstract painting.

For de Staël, figuration and abstraction were never mutually exclusive categories. His aim was neither to represent things directly, nor to bow to the total abstraction. Instead, de Staël's was interested in the suggestion of volume, space, and distinct forms in the barest possible terms, alluding to external stimuli without ever giving in to a wholly figurative process.

I create small studies like Figures On The Beach in preparation for a finished piece or just as visual notes. I often use my small studies to understand the problems involved in rendering subjects and to plan the elements to be used in finished works, such as light, color, form, perspective and composition.

These small studies are exclusively available through my shop and blog. All studies are signed on the reverse.
