Gold acrylic triangle with black

My latest 10 x 10 inch// 25 x 25 cm acrylic on canvas continues my study of singular-focused images against black negative space. This piece features a heavily textured triangle shape that is entirely golden.

Gold light

I took photos of in the light, and so the shine of the black acrylic paint allows the viewer to also see raised texture floating in the blackness. Here (below) is a shot with the brightness turned down, and the contrast brought up to maximum. The painting has a much sexier look with the adjustments- and I think I will (one day) invest in the services of a professional photographer to capture my work.

What a haunting image

The intent behind this piece was to depict the fading light of a distant dying star. The glow is homogeneous and the texture is as even as I could apply it. It reminds me of a ghostly apparition. Something emerging from the darkness that has an unknown origin.

If I could change something about this piece, it would be the lack of clean and sharp lines. I will work on honing my sculpture skills in the next piece. This style needs to be explored, and I have quite a few ideas I’m very excited to implement.

Thanks for stopping by, and please check in again soon to see what I have been working on.

Black space acrylic with green and silver

My latest piece is entitled “Nights over Algonquin part 2”. It is part of a series I did with a deep-space black background.

The concept was to create a piece where the colours would jump out and create a sense of excitement.

Neon permanent green flows along the bottom of the piece as the dependable earth cradles us. A sea of blue is nestled within the fields of green as well; but, what I enjoy most about this piece is the sky.

In my eyes, the gorgeous blendings and splashings of silver, blue, and pearlescent violet against the deep Mars Black background remind me of an surrealistically neon light. The colours are almost alien, yet still emit a feeling of familiarity. The result is an excitement-filled piece that allows me to discover something new to love about it each time I lay my eyes upon it.

Gold and black acrylic with 24k gold leaf

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.

Dark Navy Blue, Silver and Gold Metallic Abstract Acrylic on Canvas Outer Space Mood Art

My latest piece is a celestial depiction of a star collapsing into a black hole. The star is made of reams of silver and gold metallic paint. I used blending and pouring techniques to combine the dark and light areas.

The above shot was taken as the first layer of the piece dried. You can see the reflection of my light in the surface of the poured blue acrylic.

The endless abyss of blue holds a dark depth at its heart, and you can almost see the ghost-like human face that sits in the background like an echo.

Green and Blue Blended Acrylic on Sun Canvas Art

I frequently represent the sun in my art work. It adds a heavy presence and deep meaning to my art. Sometimes the subject is an abstract of an earthly landscape, and other times not. One of the things that I enjoy the most about creating art is the feedback I get from other people describing what they see. Art is truly as subjective as they say, and so I think the meaning, impression and other descriptors of a piece must change depending on who is looking.  I love the sun. To me, my latest work is an island sun.

Such a beautiful combination to have blue, green and yellow splashes representing the sun.

This 13 x 13 inch acrylic on gallery canvas is called Clarendon, and is the latest of my Fall 2018 series.
