Latest Scratch Work: Herald Angel 2018-
Acrylic on wood panel by Stephanie Konu
This abstract 10 x 10 inch wood panel is a wild ride of eclectic technique, unusual colour, contrast, and a psychedelic trip into the imagination.
I named it Herald Angel because the golden field that sits in the north-west corner represents an angel’s visit. Darkness swirls below. Iridescent green floats away into the atmosphere. Its existence is alien and benevolent.
I love how the heavy iridescent green floats over the complex blue background. The swirling blue is reminiscent of an ocean from a satellite view of a planet.
Thank you for checking in. I do this blog as an artistic expression for myself, so I love your comments!
My latest piece was an unexpected development of blending and contrasting colours. Using acrylic pour techniques, hunter green and moss are suspended in each other to give the appearance of cream meeting coffee.
The left and bottom edges have paint splatter to amp up the drama and turbulence of the environment, while yellow specks of sunlight peek through the dense cloud space. The title of this work is simply G.C.
My favourite part of the work is seen above- the meeting of the light creamy green with dark green. The figure is ghostly, and resembles a human face that seems to possibly be aghast. At its heart is a void of cerulean blue- as if an explosion removed what was there before.
I love the abstract art because it allows the viewer to decide the story of what they see. I am continuously impressed by the imaginative responses I get from people about what they see in my artwork. It is truly amazing to reflect on the power of those imaginations, and also how the experiences or mindsets of people influence what they see.
