lossy pigments swirl and disperse in Daniel Tidbury’s textural works in resin and acrylic; colliding with dramatic waves of colour across deep, dappled layers of paint. Finding inspiration in his surroundings, travels and life experiences, his vivid mixed media paintings evoke a sense of energy, drama and mood, with titles such as ‘Abyss’ and ‘Lost in Space’ perfectly balancing the tone of each piece. His earlier works, which often feature abstract seascapes and skyscapes, are equally bold and colourful; with animated brush strokes in bright tones of pink, orange, green and blue, layered with expressive splashes of paint. This free-flowing method of painting allows the artist a physical, creative release away from daily life.

With household tools, knives and brushes, Tidbury’s techniques are constantly evolving. His latest works explore the effects and unpredictable beauty of acrylic pouring and chemical dispersion. He allows the materials to flow onto the canvas, mixing acrylics with PVA, water, methylated spirits and resin, perfectly timing his manipulations before letting the work settle into its final formation. Creating work from his garden studio in Hampshire, Tidbury continues to develop and explore techniques, while exhibiting and taking commissions. danieltidbury.co.uk hello@danieltidbury.co.uk
