Amy Olds - Semaphore


Oil and acrylic on canvas, 67x67cm

Abstract painting using reds, beige, grey splashes surrounded by a geometric ground of blues and green. Painted around the deep edges to make it seem 3-dimensional. The title refers to system of communication using coloured flags on the high seas and the form is meant to refer to viewing through a spyglass.

Having always been inspired by landscape, Amy’s work sets out to capture sensations through the use of colour relationships, space and movement— the activity of painting being the subject of each work. By combining quick, accidental splashes with slower, more considered compositional choices, the pieces achieve a push-pull relationship.
