Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Just A Girl...

We knew it was her. Not by how pretty she was or the color of her skin. She had a missing tooth from when she just a girl. It never grew in. It only added to her beauty though. She could of been a model. Not her thing. She loved life and that was enough for her.

Words and Art by Rich Ray

Rich Ray Art Process Development

This technique has taken several years to master. Many hours of trial and error, hundreds of mistakes, some happy and some not so much! My process involves three stages: First, I paint the abstract artwork. Second, I photograph the art and other textures from nature. Third, I choose the photograph and download all of the different layers to the photo editor program.

This technology enables me to play with all the elements together. I spend many hours moving and arranging each piece, like a puzzle. I know it is finished when I have achieved the right balance. Meaning, the brightest colors, visual textures, and contrast for the final printed original artwork. I have tried to do this by simply painting over the photograph. I was not able to achieve the bold look I was going for, it became to muddled. This is why I chose the digital technology. I feel this gives the customer the best possible image. The Giclee print is the original artwork with the process I have developed.

The prints you purchase are the only pieces available, exclusively to Artfinder. A limited number of 150 prints for each image created.

All versions of artwork displayed are available on archival paper or canvas. Canvas is framed, paper is unframed. If you require a smaller size print please send size and I will be happy to quote new price.

*Note: Artwork shown in home setting is a digital rendition and may not me to scale. Please use a tape measure and use dimensions in artwork description to acquire accuracy.

Description Of Artists Emotional and Technical Process

Emotional Process

With each piece of artwork I create there are several emotions at play. I look at the face or figure to determine if there is a story to be told. Inevitably, there always is. I feel drawn to that person in an instinctual way.

Since I don't know them personally, my process starts to expose their hidden dimensions. The soul behind the beauty. Each layer of texture adds depth to the piece. I use my acrylic paintings, ink paintings, and photography, all art of which I create separately.

I have seen so many emotions surface that were not there in the original photo. Sometimes fear is exposed or joy, ecstasy or sorrow. We are all human. It matters not what our outward appearance is. The soul is always striving to reveal itself just under the surface.

My hope is other people view my art as a vehicle for emotions to roam freely. The vulnerability of the person in the artwork allows us to be vulnerable. I am aware that vulnerability is a teacher.

Technical Process

Each piece of art is crafted with layers of different textures and mediums. This process has been the focus of my work for the past three years. It involves acrylic painting, photography, inks, oil sticks and pastels.

The final art work is designed in a photo editor program. This technology gives me creative freedom to add in my abstract paintings and photography.
