My latest work is a beautiful, calming, abstract scene.
It is a mere 5 x 7 inches, and is entitled: “Tropical Misty Beach”. It is a haunting scene of a thick mist overcoming golden mountain ranges that can be seen peeking through. Gritty texture formed at the base of the mountain range add depth, and continue on to scatter into the deep blue sea.
As the texture settles into the sea, green colonies of coral are visible, as if they are poking out from the calm tropical sea’s surface. Perhaps for some, the white misty clouds moving across the landscape are more than condensation; their forms mimic spirits on a diaspora across the land. It’s something my imagination created, and I am interested in hearing what your imagination came up with in the comments section.
This piece really moved my sensibilities to feelings of calm and tranquility. My only regret is that I didn’t make this piece larger-perhaps 100 cm x 100 cm. Although I am unsure if bigger would have resulted in better for this abstract style.
During an experimental session of making art canvas, I tried my hand with using thin and lighter weight wood to build small 5 x 7 inch frames. My intention was to design something that had commercial applications; and right now in the online art world it is simple to make small art pieces that can be easily shipped at a minimal cost.
My three piece art series is a cerulean blue and gold set of abstract landscapes entitled:
01 Sea Breeze
02 Sea Breeze
03 Sea Breeze
The first is a rocky scene.
The second has points.
And the third is simply the sun, alone against the world. I used acrylic texturizer and pouring techniques to layer hues of blue over top other darker hues. The result is a backdrop with uneven colours that look like an abstract sky. “Stephanie’s sky” as I like to think of it.
This abstract ocean landscape shows a violent storm wherein waves crash against each other amidst a dark and treacherous sky. Swirling patterns of dark storms lurk in the background, and as a result, the waves are exceptionally high.
At the peak of the tallest wave, water pierces through the barrier that separates the scene from calmer sunlit tranquility. The break in the barrier allows glimpses of majestic gold to cascade outward and spill into its new habitat.
The ground work for this piece was an acrylic pour within which I used swirling techniques for the deep blue background. With the foundation laid, I used various hues of blue to form and shape the ocean wave.
Gold acrylic creates a beautiful contrast against blue, and is spread out as flecks across the piece. This piece is very beautiful, yet very abstract due to the risks taken to achieve the composition. I would really love to hear what YOU see in this very vivid piece.
Leave me your thoughts in the comment section, and as always, thanks for stopping by,
I used an acrylic pour method as the background; mixing white and silver as the colour for waves splashing on the coast. If you look closely, you can see a high tide wave emerging from the lower left side.
As the acrylic pour developed: a coral-like branch protrudes out into the heart of the painting. The branches have a fractal quality to them, which pull the eyes deeper in.
Over the vista, and through the green limbs of an alien-looking cactus plant; two moons co-orbit the sky. The presence of two moons makes evident that this abstract scene takes place on another world. In my imagination, the piece looks out from the reeds to the sky on a clear night. In a warm atmosphere, an ocean wave washes on to the shore sending water splashing up into the night sky. The oddly shaped plant is my favourite part as it is totally imperfect, but works well with the painting’s alien theme.
My latest work is an abstract mixed media on canvas. I used 24K gold leaf in addition to gold and black acrylic to create a piece that I call: “Concerto”.
Concerto is an abstract representation of my imagination of time in the universe. Time is a fluid force that melts through its environment, seeping into small crooks and caverns. The fluidity of time is one that is difficult to contain, and is uncontrollable as a result.
The positioning of each corner where gold touches black- where time meets our reality- is temporary. In this piece, the golden field melts over-top of the black expanse in an uneven method, also signifying the non-linear nature of the measurement of time in the universe versus our perceptions.
The gold colour signifies the rarity of time to humans in our existence. Time is limited, like gold, and thus holds immense value to us. At the heart of the gold acrylic field, a spackle of 24K gold leaf represents the truth and realness that lies within the unmeasurable field of golden time.
In this way, I intend to express that the value is truly authentic, as the heart of the field is real gold and not just a representation.
