Elio Cruz

Painting 22

Acrylic on Canvas

This is one of the long series of paintings that Elio Cruz produced inspired by the Hastings coastline in England. It is a semi – abstract work like many in the series, taking in elements of the cliffs, rocky out crops and the sea. Elio’s love of the Rock is evident here as one could be fooled into thinking the artist is depicting the Rock of Gibraltar. It is a work that presents a dialogue of forms, as these are brought down to their essence by the artist, who also displays his love of sharp contrasts and vivid colouring.
