'Fada' is an original painting on stretched canvas by Scottish artist; Jonathan Barber
'Fada', a 2018 100cm x 100cm canvas series is a response to colour and light within a landscape. Dynamic layers of blues, mints and greens are contrasted by bright bursts of white and pink. This is a piece that draws the viewer into planes of perspective and depth. Framed in a bespoke waxed pine box frame (in white) this is an ideal statement piece for a bright room.
Jonathan Barber, a contemporary artist based in Edinburgh creates atmospheric abstracted work based around light, darkness, shape, movement and presence. After graduating from the School of Drawing and Painting at Edinburgh College of Art (2008) Jonathan has continued to make and exhibit work as well as teach Art and Design at Primary, Secondary and College level. His recent work consists of large scale abstract landscapes on canvas and board alongside smaller more intricate studies on paper. His developed aesthetic is made up of dark weighty tones bringing depth and distance to the canvas. Accents of colour are skilfully used as compositional tools to entice the viewer to weave through layers and perspective.
