Collage: Pencil, Paint on Wood, Paper.
I love to play in the places between realism and abstract. To find ways to exercise my inborn ability to draw realism, which feels very technical like a paint by number, and to synthesize a new reality into it. Reaching for a more interesting version of my chosen subjects that still 'works', provides a greater challenge to my intelligence and creativity. Hence, a more exciting journey. My goal always is that in the end I have created a more attractive and compelling image of the simple objects from which I began. Even in this modern age, I still equate beauty with art.
The objects in this painting were found in my kitchen. I began by executing a very detailed still life drawing using graphite pencils. I then used that original image to create copies for the abstract panels, balancing them all together with colored pencil and charcoal powder.
The entire piece is mounted on a wood panel and protected with two coats of archival satin varnish. Beautifully framed in a cherry wood toned floater frame. Price includes frame.
Ready to hang.
