The colour blue has long been associated with the rich

Blue only appeared when the Egyptians started mining and unearthed lapis lazuli, a semi-precious stone first found in Afghanistan about 6,000 years ago. Lapis was scarce and thus greatly prized, and was used to adorn the tombs of pharaohs and the eyes of Cleopatra.

I thought as blue symbolised wealth it was only fitting to use the colour in this painting of the guy looking out onto the city of London from the Gherkin.

Limited palette of blues and greys.

Acrylic on Loxley gold traditional canvas with black frame.

It is supplied ready to hang, fitted with ‘D’ rings and picture cord.

Kris Mercer Art
Kris Mercer Art

Kris Mercer works from her home studio in Ravenshead, Nottinghamshire.

She studied Art and Design as a mature student at Mansfield Art College leaving with a distinction in 1996.

Although accepted on a Fine Art Degree course in Derby, Kris spread her wings and moved to Cyprus to pursue her artistic endeavours.

Returning back to the UK in 2000 she had been working on both figurative and abstract works. Gaining awards and recognition at home and in the USA.

As the years progress with eyesight and dexterity both on the wain Kris has been forced to reassess her working relationship to her art.

She has now settled into a new regime doing less of the figurative works with abstracts taking centre stage.

Today, Kris resides in Nottinghamshire and displays her art at exhibitions and juried shows around the country.

In 2016 she was placed 2nd in the Innovative Art section of the American Art Awards and also won a Derwent Award. 2017 saw her win a Clairefontaine award and The Artist exhibition award.

Action painting of the New York school figures heavily in a lot of the works but in her own style without so much emphasis on the "action"

More a dynamic type of painting that involves the deliberate application of considered sweeping brushstrokes and the accidental effects that occur from the gradual build up of dripping and pouring paint onto the canvas.

The pouring of the paint led to a new type of abstract where the brush is no longer required. These are more vibrant and colourful with a flat shiny surface.

The 2 styles go hand in hand because although they may look very different they both use the same techniques and materials.
