An ink and acrylic painting on sale from Mineheart’s Harry Simmonds collection. It shows model Jon standing and was taken inside a studio, chosen from a series of poses in a session between the artist and the model. A key draw for abstract art and one of the reasons it appeals to so many people is the viewer can look at the abstract art images and make their own mind up about what is happening in the picture and the context around it. This abstract painting, acrylic and ink canvas of Jon Standing is a good example, the actions of the tall looming figure of Jon are open to interpretation. In fact, he is lifting up a chair that was inside the studio.
For this large canvas abstract art for sale, like others in our monochrome abstract art paintings collection, artist Harry Simmonds acknowledges the influence of figurative artist Euan Uglow, who liked to create geometrical shapes using his model's bodies and the negative space that surrounded them. Paintings in this series were executed quickly while working with a model, often a friend of the artist. As a pose is struck, a quick sketch is drawn of it to aid the final selection process.
When a particular pose resonates with artist Harry Simmonds he will ask the model to recreate it for a longer period. Harry Simmonds acknowledges the influence of figurative artist Euan Uglow who liked to create geometrical shapes using his model's bodies and the negative space that surrounded them.
