Wildflowers Painting by Arts Society Reigate Artist Gary Meeke

Wildflowers

In painting, Impasto (Italian for dough) describes highly textured areas of the surface of a painting which are heavily built up with paint layers. Palette knife marks are clearly in evidence. I used very bold and heavy abstract paint so each colour really lifts off the canvas giving a 3D effect that is lovely to touch as well as to view.

Why not add floral artwork to your home or office. It’s also the perfect gift for your loved ones, relatives, and friends. I never paint the same painting twice, so you will have a one-of-a-kind original painting.

About The Artist

A little about me and how and why I paint.

When I see a canvas, I never get artist's block, I see my next great adventure starting. I'm on a journey without a plan that is constantly evolving. Each brush or palette knife stroke turns into something wonderful that eventually turns into a painting. That Is true art to me, rather than planning every step of the way, but who am I to say?

I am new to painting compared to many other artists and totally self-taught. I never studied at art school and have no art qualifications, but does that make my art unworthy? Can I even call myself an artist? I guess we all have to start somewhere but at least I'm honest enough to admit it and still place great love and passion into every painting I paint.

I have used every painting medium available but found my true love in acrylics. I started painting all sorts of things including trees, waterfalls, fields, sunsets etc. until my wife asked me to paint her a flower painting.
"Paint flowers!" I said, but I gave it a go, and surprisingly my wife was pleased. Since then, I have developed a unique way of painting flowers which I absolutely love. I mix my own heavy-bodied abstract paint and paint Impasto-style impressionist flowers.

After selling my art at various fairs and shows around the UK, I have decided it's now time to build a website to display it in a much easier fashion. I truly hope my paintings bring you as much pleasure as they did for me painting them.

I will post free within the UK. If you live outside the UK and wish to purchase my art, please contact me and I will be happy to find out shipping costs for you.

Please visit my website to view all of my artworks.

Making Waves

The work was based on an antique Chinese vase from a museum archive. The vase was red and gold and had a fish detail in the glaze. The sculpture reflects the fish detail by simulating the sinusoidal motion of a fish through water.

The neck of the vase represents the fin of a fish oscillating in a different plane to its body. The bulb of the vase was reminiscent of antique glass buoys. The string is used as a play on this nautical theme representing the rope that links the buoys together. These were traditionally used to float fishing nets to catch fish in the same way that the fish detail was captured in the original vase. The colours are based on goldfish in the artist’s garden pond.

About The Artist

My work aims at challenging our perception of ourselves, our fragility and strength.

My sculptures evolve by manipulating multiple cast objects so that the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts. Using repetition as emphasis, the outcome has a decorative geometry and kinetic unity that expresses are shared human experiences and conditions.

Bones are emblematic in much of my work, and the contextually linked objects reveal a narrative. Although frequently ornate, my sculptures hide darker and often sinister subjects that when revealed create dissonance. The sum like an optical puzzle, oscillates between beauty and nightmare.

My work is not autobiographical in the figurative sense, but like many artists, explores the liminal space between conscious representation and unconscious influence.

Recently my work has looked at the humanitarian aspects of the COVID19 pandemic and the current crisis of refugees crossing the English Channel.

About The Artist

I am a Croatian artist based in Ashtead, Surrey in the UK.

I first started painting when I was only 12 years old. My first piece of art was a heart on a black surface and the heart has followed me through my work ever since.

I' ve been very attached to my paintings as they have shown a part of me, but as my walls filled and corners became unaproachable, I realised it was time for others to see my work.

I usually stand in front of an empty canvas and just start painting. What it becomes, the canvas, is often a surprise for me as well. So, it's fair to say, Abstract Expressionism is my style of painting.

Recently, I' ve discovered that paint brushes exist, so I have painted some portraits and nudes. It was fun, but nothing can match the naked hand in a pot of acrylic paint and as a Baccalaureate of Nursing, I do have gloves!

I enjoy commissions, but be aware, I will put my own twist on them!
