TREE (2022)

Tree (2022) is an artwork by Joshua Obara Norwood – an abstract expressionist style with oil pigment sticks over a wooden canvas. The work is full of distorting previous layers, scratching into the surface, and then painting over it again with the pigment. These methods create a history with the idea of creating a mysterious shady tree in the painting.

It is supposed to be hung with the other painting, “JUNCTION I“, which showcases a chaotic metro look. This painting is calm yet slightly chaotic, which adds to the illusion of stability that both give. Perhaps- we’re not stable, and we all have a bit of chaos and calm within us. These are human emotions transcribed into a painting and manipulated so that anything or everything can suddenly be wiped away. A wipe with clay modelling tools creates a swipe. Unconventional tools are used as life is not convenient.

These paintings that Joshua does are painted over several days. Every new layer adds a new form of history as multi-faceted, like a person. You can find his art on sale over here.
