Blues Run The Game
Connected by techniques of diffusion, illumination and blending, Derrick Breidenthal’s paintings focus attention on the power and inherent beauty of organic aesthetics, as well as the distress that nature is broadcasting to the world on a daily basis. His paintings are confident depictions of atmospheric spaces that move on an interesting line between abstraction and realism. Rich oils manifest in a range of lucid sensations for the viewer. By using colour and landscape as a universal entry point, Breidenthal is able to discuss precise concerns and observations that we share as humans. The euphoria, grace and fragility of our surroundings is central.
