Featured Artist: Harry James Moody

I do abstract paintings. I think and hope they are what they are. Aside​​​​​​​​​ from asking myself what am I doing, I also ask what they might possibly have in common with a 15th/16th century old master such as Lucas Cranach or Breughel the Elder? I mean, abstract is abstract and I cannot second-guess how anyone would perceive my paintings. All of my paintings are foremost inspired by nature. When I paint, I do not try to simulate nature in a recognizable representation. I use nature as a point of departure. The actual painting process is a metaphoric journey with allegorical attributions. I catch myself inserting “life” without attaching figurative associations, conceptual forms or themes. Life in the sense as a summary (past, present and maybe future) of who I am. While painting, feelings flow, such as fears, frustrations, inhibitions, anxieties, also joy, contentment and gratitude. Along with feelings, memories of past experiences, failures and accomplishments, manifest themselves.
