Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Oil, Paint, Wax and Enamel on Canvas.

Life with all its facets and circles spinning, ups and downs, obstacles, challenges, meltdowns, successes, highlights, the wild rollercoaster with its emotions. The yellow, orange and red melt at times, then precise circles spinning, with gold and copper illustrating the victories and success. Original painting by Dietmar Scherf (2017). Signed, titled and dated by Artist Dietmar Scherf with Certificate of Authenticity.

Media: Initially, the artwork is "baptized" with fire to purify it as candle wax is applied to the canvas. After that like all of Scherf's canvas paintings, the canvas is covered in black paint. Then various types of paints (oil, acrylic, enamel, metallics, etc.) are carefully applied with various techniques to create this exceptional original masterpiece. This artwork also features the typical Scherf ornaments unique to his original paintings. A very small piece of Dietmar Scherf's DNA is also embedded in a wax cocoon on the canvas. This painting received a white paint coat over the black base paint coating.
Although applying his own techniques, for this painting artist Dietmar Scherf was inspired by Jackson Pollock's work saying, "It was an experiment and I just had that vision not realizing that utilizing Jackson Pollock's technique as a key component for 'Life' was a very work intensive process."
During the finishing process of the artwork, high-quality varnish is applied for protection. This rare masterpiece artwork has been created on a stretched canvas over a 1.5" thick wooden frame and is ready to hang.
