Abstract expression – Words cannot express the grief I feel – The first of a series of four
This is the first work in the series of digital abstract expressionist artworks by Bert Ernie. These paintings are an attempt to express the meaning of life, living and death. They try and show what it is to be human.
Human lives are incredibly complex. We have a range of emotions from extremes of sadness to exhilarating joy. These emotions are intertwined and connected to the rich tapestry of human experiences as we travel through life.
Bert’s brother Luke passed away on April 15th 2016. These four digital abstract works of art are extremely powerful works of art. They are great metaphors for the human existence. Complex, dynamic, convoluted, joyous and sad these are the elements that make up every humans life. Bert believes there is no better way to express these powerful emotions than with abstract expressionism.
Bert finds the words to express his grief of his brother Luke nigh on impossible. So he has tried with a series of four paintings. The sheer complexity of the works are a great metaphor for life. The forms range from small dots up to large abstract and dynamic forms. The colour palette is incredible – it is full of lights, dark’s, bright colours and grays.
These digital abstract works of art parallel what it is to be human.
We are born.
And along that journey we create an abstract tapestry of life.
This painting (and the others in the series) is about life, living and death.
