Michael Schur

In His earliest paintings he was influenced by Gothic Architecture. The paintings he painted then had strong elements of stained glass affects and were supported by structures such as flying buttresses. Later his love of music became dominant in his paintings and this added rhythmical movement as may be seen in his brush strokes.

Colour and texture play an important part in this approach as do strong compositional lines. Underlying colour affects the top layers of colour as they reflect through the layers. Being very rhythmical his choice of subjects likewise, lend themselves more readily to these qualities. For example musical figures, harlequins and dancing figures are obviously more adaptable to this textured affect.

In landscapes, however, he uses rhythmical lines and planes of colour in such a way to perpetuate the harmony found in nature. All through his work, texture helps to provide a backdrop to this flowing motion.
