Graham Dwyer is a contemporary British artist who believes that all exceptional art lies in its power to bring light and joy into the inner realm of being through the manipulation of shape and colour in the outer world. Inspired by Austrian Modern Artist, Hundertwasser, and by American Abstract Expressionist, Pollock, Dwyer uses sticks as well as drips and drops paint on to the canvas, rather than using paintbrushes. He does his artwork with the canvas on the floor, abandoning the traditional method of working in an upright position with use of an easel. Dwyer feels that this alternative method allows the artist freely to move around the painting and to engage with it from multiple viewpoints or perspectives, whilst allowing the images that arise to realise their own life in a natural and organic way. According to Dwyer, every painting has its own unique energy, and it is the artist’s task to discover this and to facilitate its rhythm and flow through aesthetic absorption in the act of painting itself. Because he equally insists that his particular style of abstract art has its own natural authority - resisting all linear representations or conventional approaches to subject construction - he believes that this itself ensures unfettered freedom for his canvases to achieve their vitality effortlessly, generating also in those who view them an appreciation of their singularity, their vibrancy and their beauty.
