"Candy Man" Original Painting by Jean-Luc Almond
Sam. 40 x 30cm. Oil on Wood.
"Sam" is a stunning new piece by prize winning painter Jean-Luc Almond.
Typically within Jean-Luc's work is a process of creation and destruction, each portrait is classically painted before the artist "destroys" the piece with impasto layering in oil, rendering an arresting and haunting image.
Set against a rich turquoise background "Sam" is a visually striking piece, the unusual angle of the face gives the portrait a mysterious air, creating a dialogue between the painting and the viewer. Rich layering throughout brings exquisite texture and depth.
