"Afflictus" is an original acrylic painting by professional artist Brazen Edwards. This contemporary abstract artwork is an 11x14x1.5" acrylic painting on wood cradle panel.
This painting is part of a series I created for my Duo Exhibition entitled "Emotion vs Logic : Approaches to Abstract Painting" with Fiona Neal.
The inspiration for this particular exhibition was based on how each artist drew from their personal lives and expressed themselves using two entirely different approaches to painting.
Neal uses meditation and an emotional connectedness whereas Edwards compositions are conceptual using science and alchemy. They both believed, however, that there is a need to participate in the present moment so the challenge with their project was to strip down to the most simple and symbolic elements that resonate with mood and atmosphere, light and shadow causing either an emotional reaction or a logical one.
