Oil on Birch Panel
10 x 60"
DescriptionThese works on birch wood panels, begin with mixing and pouring latex and oil paints simultaneously. The result is a balance of unforeseen elements and happy accidents. I collectively layer color, gestural marks and rich patterns into the work while the pieces are wet. Scraping, brushing, rolling, printing and sanding techniques are also used in the process. The juxtaposition of loose brushwork with tight hand painted patterns are meant to intrigue the viewer, with color serving as the primary motif that threads the multiple images together.
