Palmera

2017, Oil on linen, 46cm x 65cm. €760

One of four paintings I made of this building. It’s one of the older apartment blocks on the seafront, dating back to the 60s. I’m attracted to it because of its nostalgic reminder of the past. I love the light airiness of its simple structure. In this painting I emphasised the simple geometry of the squares and rectangles of the facade and windows, which contrast nicely with the curves of the palm tree and the formlessness of the clouds.
