Jeff Hoare

Portfolio: Sea Paintings

Jeff's most iconic works are his sea paintings which evolved out of his experiments working in the sea. It took him time to work out what he was doing and what he wanted. The paintings are not visual representations of the sea, but visceral expressions of it.  Every painting is unique and captures the natural environment through the unpredictable and unceasing chaotic movement of the waves - and the artist's energy in working with the water, a very wet canvas and the colours.  His colour palette is extraordinary and unique. The end result is abstract, youthful, vibrant, with subtleties of change caused by and reflecting the sea itself.
