My latest 10 x 10 inch // 25 cm x 25 cm piece is an acrylic on canvas, with blue and silver blended over a black negative space. I have been having strong desires to paint with black negative space, (or white), and focusing on depicting experiences that float over darkness like an echo. Deep stuff. What makes the concept special to me, is that I have been able to capture a sweet spot in my backyard garden that with the correct sunlight, my work dazzles!
My latest piece depicts a somber breath. There is loneliness in the encroaching darkness, and so the heart of the blue ethereal field burns in a white silver light.
The silver heart center does, interestingly enough, seem to emerge as a lopsided heart. Or Maybe at least a lung.
This piece has an ultra calming vibe to it. I feel so relaxed when I lay my eyes on it. I am really happy with the deep black background, as I think it brings more focus to the heart of the painting.
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.
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.
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.
What do you see in my latest piece? Tell me what you think in the comments below.
My latest painting is a splendid mix of bright yellow, iridescent blue, and white. There is a surge of excitement in this piece, and some mystery as well.
As of yet, this painting is unnamed, which may as well be since I feel like it will have a short time with me as its owner. The eclectic blends and pops of colour on this unnamed work make it ideal for digitizing– a run through on Photoshop would produce some interesting lines that are invisible to the naked eye.
I feel like there is a story being expressed here- the bright yellow is the base layer, excitement and uncontrolled raw delight. The Id. Over head, clouds of opaque blue close in, partially encompassing our view of the excitement. Protective. Finally, white snow splashes and swirls at parts encroach over it’s lesser layer. Reason and altruism.
A few blue explosions that look mysterious in their origins remind us to expand once in a while.
