Artist's description:

“Reflection”

Exhibits: “Slow Down | Speed Up” group show, Atrium Gallery, Ventura, CA, 24 May -9 July 2019


“Reflection” is 24”x36” and I guess the newest piece; the first piece of 2019. It is also technically the longest to complete as well.

This canvas was originally painted in 2015 and was a massive explosion of color. The base was black and the original concept was to just use various shades of blue but through the course of applying paint, it quickly gravitated toward other colors being applied until the painting was an explosion of color.

I had it hanging in my house and was never really satisfied with it but would stare at it thinking what more could be done to it and finding myself inspired to create other works/series so it served as a muse in some ways.

Then the need to create again came over me and I took this canvas off the wall and decided to use a simple palette of black, white, and grey to mute the colors then scraped the layers off to try to allow the colors to peek through. Finally, using black paint that had been watered down, the final figurative elements were added. All that remains of the original piece are the hints of color and the black edges of the canvas.

Titled, wired, and signed on the back.

Can be hung as is.

Materials used:

Acrylic paint, palette knives, syringe
