Painting: Enamel, Acrylic, Urethane, Wax on Canvas.
This is a rather large piece, measuring five feet by four feet (1.52 x 1.22 m), executed using pigments in acrylic, urethane and wax mediums on heavy weight linen. It is finished under glossy urethane, giving the piece a glass-like surface, which makes it difficult to fully appreciate the piece in a photograph - the three-dimensional depth created by the suspended pigments in the completely transparent urethane medium needs to be experienced in person. As you approach the piece, there is a certain nervous expectation - it is as if upon contact the surface tension would give way to a flood of luscious warm color.
"Aseileron" is one of the early pieces in the Constelaria Series, a series that now approaches three dozen works. The first pieces came about slowly, years between each of them, all sharing a common energy and rhythm, a combination of Jackson Pollock drips, Paul Jenkins puddles and Georges Seurat dots.
The first Constelaria painting, same size as this one, came about in 1995, and it became the cover for my first CD release "Pet Anxieties" by improvisational progressive rock group "Gazeuse"
It was only recently that I came upon Miro's Constellations, and I completely share and understand in his fascination with the Universe, the essence of creative energy. For me, it has proven to be a fertile ground for continued exploration, as I executed many of the works in this series in the last couple of years, and have full intention of continuing!
