Graham Forsythe - Swing Dance
Dimensions: 15" x 45" Paper and Image (oversize)
A series of impressionistic birch trees. Red and yellow leaves fall from the branches. Set against a pale sky, yellow foliage, green grass, and red soil.
(1952-2012) Graham Forsythe's vibrant paintings display a palpable sense of enthusiasm about life. The excitement captured on canvas mirrors a life full of creating and reaching for something more. Forsythe's paintings take the forms of still-lifes, landscapes and luminous abstracts. This self-taught artist credits his optical operation and his travels as his most valuable artistic influences. Forsythe does not categorize his paintings but instead finds that “painting can be like meditation… without the prejudices of historical reference or anticipation of its outcome.
