John Dyer Painting. The Rice Market, Los Banos, the Philippines
The amazing sight of the rice market in the Philippines has created the perfct subject matter for artist John Dyer. The telegraph pole and the wires radiating from it generates a compositional energy that draws our eye into the center where we can glimpse jeepneys on the road beyond.Bags of rice fill the foreground and birds swoop through the sky. A perfect painting for any food lover or traveler.
John Dyer: In the 1950s simple neutral frames became popular for St Ives artists. John chooses an off-white so the lightest tones appear in the painting. The moulding is a variation of 'Salvator Rosa' from Italy. Hand finished in almond white paint.
