Watermark is an original abstract painting by Adrienne Byrne. This work is in a fauvist style. The style is quite free flowing and suggests the calm waters of a pond.

Adrienne studied Art and Design at St. Martins in London and also did a Post Graduate in Photography at St. Martins. I paint in oils on canvas or linen and sometimes on silk or wood. My latest work is abstract paintings suggesting land and sea scapes. I like the image to form itself as I start to work and build up layers of colour and shade. I am interested in painting in a seamless way avoiding lines and edges and even brush strokes. Lines and edges define things and influence how we perceive them so I like to remove any lines and edges by merging colour and form and so make suggestions to the viewer that might trigger a memory or feeling of somewhere or something. This smooth, seamlessness I think suggests a transience and so fluid subjects like air or skies or memories can be caught and held for our gaze. The work is about potential expressed in a non verbal language and because it is not prescriptive it is more open to allowing our own creative and emotional interpretation.

Size: H:60 cm x W:80 cm
