Serious Series of Numbers

I have recently began a new series of paintings and I wondered if people liked them.  I have been making more sales in the previous weeks, so I guess somebody must like them.  I just wanted to also thank Jafabrit for the mention once again, you are too kind.

So anyway here is the painting and feel free to leave feedback.

Number1: Day and Night

102cm x 76cm (deep canvas)


Author: James Presley

I am an artist and I love it. What do I have to do to live from what I love? I'm not dying or cutting me bloody ear off, that's for sure.

  1. Oh, that explains the highly emotional piece. I always seem to be at my best when I feel cornered or want to give up. I think you too. It seems we all go through the same crap. Be patient, your time will come…maybe when you least expect it. You know what Madách said: ” Mondottam, Ember : Küzdj, és bízva bízzál!”
    For feedback you should drop by ASC more often. There have been a good number of abstract artists lately. All the best James, and keep up the good work!


  2. I wanted to do something a little different because I ran out of ideas for the Egyptian theme. And I had recently looked at ‘Birth’ by Jackson Pollock and that kind of inspired me. I had also planned on giving up painting because I get so frustrated not ever getting any feedback and not knowing any artists that i wanted to go out with a bang. I don’t know if I will paint anymore and if I don’t then people will remember me by my last one.


  3. Something makes me come back to this piece. It has a restless, fast-forward rhyhtm to it, at least the day part. This is how I feel when I’m frustrated about my work. The night part on top calms it down a bit. Very nice.
    I don’t know if you like to explain your work or not, it would be certainly interesting to hear thoughts on what trigerred this painting.


  4. Hey, you’re welcome, your work is a joy to explore. This one being no different. I like the balance of colours and shapes. At first I didn’t feel there was a focal point (not a bad thing) but my eye seems to be drawn to what looks like a skull shape with a goatee to the right. From there it moves up and around the canvas leading to the bottom right and back up. For me that movement reinforces the movement of day and night. Not sure if that was your intention, but it is working for me. There are also little parts of the painting that I so enjoy on their own, such as the bottom left white triangle with the red and yellow around it.
