Painting: Mixed Media, Acrylic, Oil, pigment, cupper on Paper, Other.
This work is part of a process of experimentation around the mix of typical art materials: oil and acrylic. In a search to mix water and oil, two mixes are made: one based on copper pigment and medium for oil, the other based on black pigment, medium for acrylic and water. The large format paper was shot on the ground and the work was done in this way, that is, in the horizontal. I walked by pouring these two mixes of color according to my deliberate intentions. This could be the "control" within the work, while the movements and reactions of the materials within the paper represent "chance".
The size of the paper is more important than the other works I did in that period. The format in this case is rectangular and not square. I used 200 grs. paper so it can be able to retain important quantities of liquid, reason why also it is heavy. This weight allows a certain rigidity in the work. So I decided to bend a corner and leave it there with nothing to hold it. The paint was poured on the support in these particular conditions.
This work was made with three layers of paint, so that the color mixes product of the layer superposition can be observed. But in some areas it is also very clear, how both materialities are rejected.
The assembly is direct to the wall, being held in one corner and also in the center in the superior part, to be able to maintain this way the fold of the paper. This causes the work to become three-dimensional.
