January Abstracts

My latest piece is warm, golden, azure blue-esque, iridescent and metallic. (The hour that I write this is a very late one, so bear with me.)

This piece is small, yet the impact is big. Deep layers of varying shades of blue act as the backdrop of this work. Looking deeply, one can observe a light sheen of translucent turquoise that has an ever so slight iridescent quality.

The concept of this piece began with a desire to have a richly layered blue foundation for another rich, yet contrasting , metallic gold acrylic pour. I think this piece is another excellent example of the participatory feature of my work. The viewer of the work is the most important decipher-er of what it means. I can tell you what it means to me; however it is only a mere suggestion to the next set of eyes.

Mountain Abstract Landscape Three Piece Series

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.

Blue Abstract Art with Yellow Acrylic

My latest artwork is both relaxing and bold. Cerulean blue is contrasted with a sharp yellow line that spans the face of the piece.

Covered Path Acrylic on Canvas by Stephanie Konu

 

The piece is entitled Covered Path and features a semi-obscured bright yellow glimpse of a sun reflecting off of a stormy ocean surface.

Splashes of cerulean blue, white, and turquoise give life and movement.

A small piece of gold leaf adds a reflective and eye catching aspect to the work. When the sun catches this piece, this tiny piece of gold acts as a reminder to stay positive and to cultivate gratitude.

The white splatter spot brings the piece together, serving as a reminder that calm, tranquility, and peace is ever present in the universe.

This piece will be available shortly in the shop section. In the meantime, you can see the other pieces that are currently for sale by clicking here.

Blue Ocean Acrylic on Canvas

My latest piece is ultra calm and tranquil. Continuing with the 13 x 13 inch canvas size series, I painted and poured this acrylic on canvas abstract using premium heavy duty cotton canvas stretched over thick 2×2 wood.

The title is Homonym and I feel like I can just fall into it..

The top of the piece is an abstract setting of the sun cascading over water that is becoming increasingly rough. There are wisps of grey storm clouds co-mingling with the sun- perhaps to ultimately overpower it.

There is movement in this piece, yet mysteriously a light triangle coloured object is adrift within it. I love how this one turned out!

Green, Blue, and Iridescent Silver Acrylic on Canvas abstract art

Recently, I completed a commissioned art work that features green, silver, and blue acrylic.

Remembering the old advice I received once: “If you want to be good at something you must always practice, practice practice!”

As a result, I have been using store bought canvas for my day to day practice. When I am ready to create a higher quality piece, I still prefer to use the canvas that I custom make. When I make my own canvas I use 100% heavy cotton canvas, I stretch it over thick 2 x inch wood, and I triple prime the canvas with gesso.

Unless an artist is paying for the highest premium canvas available, the level of quality I get from making my own canvas is unparalleled. As I have mentioned before, when an artist is unrestricted by the high costs of supplies and materials their creativity is able to reach heights that the average person can only dream of.

That being said, my latest commissioned work:

This untitled piece is 10 x 10 inches and has been painted on store bought canvas.

It is essentially a blend of colours with sharp splatters of silver. This piece is very abstract and was mainly a focus of colour composition rather than form.

It is a slight departure from my usual work, but I really enjoyed the way it developed.
