Painting: Digital, Acrylic, Oil, Spray Paint, Ink on Canvas.
Acrylic, acrylic based medium, archival varnish UV protection, oil, and pigmented Ultrachrome inkjet prints (collage) on canvas. The piece comes ready to hang.
The basis of the artwork is an over-painted auction advertisement. The over-painting was digitally photographed and broken down on the computer until the original image began to dissolve. The result was printed out as Ultrachrome inkjet prints and mounted on canvas (collage) with a transparent medium UV protection. Segments of inkjet prints are sanded and cut back to reveal glimpses of paint creeping out from underlying layers. Barely visible beneath the obliterated surface, fragments of text and numerals emerge, recalling written communications, uniting detached image and aggrandized emotion as a parody of media advertisements. The print allows the paint to be its most animal expression of itself, while creating a charming opposition between the sculptural qualities of paint and the flat surface of the print, leaving a picture plane marked by an effortlessly elegant dance of smudges, puddles and saturated strokes.
