Melting Glaciers - Abstract Impasto art painting by Deb Breton. Is a call to action for humans to ACT in accordance to stem the tide of global warming. Heavily textured impasto.
Most times I love painting with thick paints and heavy gel mediums. By using these thick heavy body paints together with heavy gel medium I’m able to get some interesting textures and patterns and really transfer the emotion I feel about a subject onto the canvas.
The texture of the cross in this painting symbolizes the ultra conservative Christian views of: 1) not believing there is such a thing as global warming and that if it does exist, the rapture is coming anyway. 2) the idea that a band-aid attempt of half-assed measures will do anything to fix it.
Signed on the back(verso).
The painting's theme continues on the sides of the canvas, so you could hang this without a frame if you wanted to. Wired hardware is already attached and it's ready to hang immediately in that perfect spot.
Every painting is sealed with several coats of non-yellowing varnish that keeps your painting vibrant and protects it from ultra violet light (though it’s best to display any painting or artwork away from direct sunlight).
Thanks so much for taking an interest in my work!
