The painting entitled 'Reflections in the Harbour', created in 2024 in acrylic on canvas, is a work that captures the eye for its liveliness and dynamism. The dimensions are considerable, measuring 115x95 cm, or approximately 45x37 inches, offering a significant visual impact. The technique employed is evident in the bold, textured use of paint, which lends an almost tactile three-dimensionality to the work. The colour palette is broad and varied, with a striking balance of warm and cool tones that reflects the harbour environment in an abstract way. The brushstrokes are vigorous and direct, creating a visual rhythm that guides the eye through the entire composition. The artist has skilfully captured the essence of reflections on water, a classic Impressionist theme, but with a contemporary approach that challenges conventional perceptions of the subject. The tension between figurative recognition and abstraction is palpable, inviting the viewer to prolonged observation and personal reflection. This painting is a clear example of how contemporary art can both pay homage to and renew the traditions of the past.
