Damian Woodford

An original oil painting on canvas

Damian’s painting utilizes primary and secondary colours with the arrangement of abstract shapes. He likes to pull apart the components of visual form and reduce them to bare gestures: lines, arcs, circles, and polygons become his building blocks.

Using decorating brushes and palette knives, he applies oil or acrylic paint to build up layers of colour, creating different planes across the canvas. Linear patterning contrasts with cell-like containers and the seemingly deep layers of coloured shapes produce a visible push-pull tension.
