About Alphonso Doss

About the artwork

The artist brings a unique stylistic handling to the classical poses and stories. His canvases are loosely painted: oil paint is applied wet so the colour is as transparent as possible. Large areas of canvas are often left untouched whilst outlines of subject matter are done quickly, often in one colour, and rarely corrected so the majority of the finished product is arrived at rapidly. Doss explains that this effect was arrived at by close inspection of gems and precious stones and the manner in which light is refracted through them. His palette is restricted to olive greens, browns, yellow, sky blue and fiery red. These have special meanings: yellow is symbolic of intelligence, red denotes strength and blue means space and calm. The final painterly effect is described poetically as 'the cosmic energy that umbrellas us and that houses all religions beneath it'.
