The story of

Round the bend

45cm x 60cm

2020

The painting “Round the bend” is one in a series of abstract expressionism paintings called Round the bend by the artist Chris Barklem, a professional artist based in Barcelona, Spain.

In this short series, the artist investigated the bend, which represents the journey through life (or, in this case, the artwork)—using gesso, paints, and pigment to build the whole canvas in the foreground, with the bend removed back to the level of the canvas.

This short experimental piece is an investigation for a much larger work that the artist is building up towards in the coming months.

The highest quality canvas on a professionally crafted stretcher. The artist used professional acrylics, mediums, and varnishes by the manufacturer Liquitex.
