In this meditative mixed media oil painting, artist David Carter suggests a glowing sunset over green grassy marshland, with gently flowing water in the foreground. David explains that the title 'adagio' is the musical direction for players to perform slowly, gracefully, with ease. He says it is the sprit in which this painting was created, and might also suggest an approach to experiencing it as well. After attaching folds of fabric to the canvas, the painting was meticulously layered with up to fifty glazes of oil paint, often hand-rubbed in, to create a deep luminous finish.

Comes framed in a 1.5" deep brushed black metal frame.

David Carter’s atmospheric abstract paintings are a reflection of the natural world. He strives to create art that is at once sensitive and meditative, yet resonate and contemporary. David describes his creative practice as “finding” paintings, rather than “making” them. "My process is completely intuitive based," he says. "I start by laying in line or layers of color and find my way forward." Spontaneous expression and exploration are key to his inspiration. David is a self-taught artist who has spent many years of experimentation developing the visual grammar that he uses today. Prior to 1990, he was a landscape painter, the influence of which is visible in his current work. Through his abstract paintings, David strives to produce an intimate, visceral, and contemplative experience for the viewer.
