My latest 13 inch x 13 inch// 33 cm x 33 cm artwork is an abstract birds-eye-perspective of islands. It is entitled “Gold Coastal”.
The scattering of lush green islands across a deep cerulean blue coastline is pleasing to the eye. It is easy to find relaxation as the eyes travel from island to island; imagining the people, places, and things that live on each one.
I used real 10K gold leaf to emphasize three areas of the archipelago setting. For me, there is always power in trilogy as it carries a deep personal meaning. There are darker shimmering layers throughout the piece to emphasize the complexity of the shoreline. I limited my use of relief in this piece, although I think a bit more texture would have been a good replacement to add grains of detail along the coasts.
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.
Thank you for checking in. Comment below and let me know what you see.
