painting of a woman enjoying a painting by Joan Miró
acrylic on panel (masonite)
8" x 8" or 20 x 20 cm
Miró invented a new kind of pictorial space in which carefully rendered objects issuing strictly from the artist's imagination are juxtaposed with basic, recognizable forms.
In L'Air we see a deep, brilliant blue of the sky, his iconic red sun as well as a black star and all sorts of creatures and symbols that seem to float above a volcanic landscape. The burnt ground show the influence of the Spanish Civil War on Miro and his work.
Miró's radical, inventive style was a critical contributor in the early-20th-century avant-garde journey toward increasing and then complete abstraction.
I create small studies like L'Air 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.
