Another Tronson du Coudray art work 'Fresh Insights' has highlighted an artistic work that creates visions of opportunity and development.
'Fresh Insights' celebrates the hopes and aspirations of all things new, developing and planning .... Tronson du Coudray has been enjoying some art in the post New Year period.
His wife of 39 years Delma Tronson says that although he varies his style, from her perspective, the ones she appreciates the most represent this genre in format, as depicted in 'Fresh Insights' where the viewer if left to imagine the dimensions of the art work.
In this instance, the various green shades as a back drop provides the imagery of growth and an in-kind development imagery without candour or haemorrhage, where as the magnetism of the finished work with its fine lines illustrates direction.
This is centered around the ideas of hope and aspirations, of all things new, developing and planning .... it's never ending, the pursuit is iconoclastic and available to anyone who has the eyes to see.
Many of Tronson du Coudray's art works have this self evident agenda whereby the viewer is transported to some far away place where imagery, joy, satisfaction, fulfillment are resplendent.
The dynamic of the visual art is such whereby the ground swell of an open swather is engulfed with a single mindedness of opportunism whereby the viewer is able to not only grasp the intent but express within their spirit a door that swings in both directions so as to maximise the heart felt treasure embodied in the visual.
In this instant the black upon the green embodies both direction and astonishment. The lines are crisp and memorising. The actions of the brush stroke illustrate that nothing is quite as it seems yet everything is exactly as it should be.
The artistic measure is not in its immediate visual, rather it its non-visual, where the spirit leads the viewer into a a world of the unknown, the world of hope, aspiring the new, rejoicing in the development and the wonder of its planning.
