Painting: Acrylic, Found Objects, Wood, Burlap, Metal on Wood.
I am a frequent traveler and enjoy exploring new places. I especially like trains. Seeing the landscape stream by in a blur of colors and textures offers endless inspiration and compositions. This painting was inspired by a trip to Oslo, Norway, and a train ride into the city from the surrounding country side. Oslo is a beautiful city, embodying Scandinavian design in its clean architectural lines and combinations of wood, cement, stone, water, landscape, steel and sky. For the first time, I used found objects, including wood and burlap, in addition to metal (steel and copper nails) to capture the composition and textures I encountered. And the repetitive pattern element continues from my last series, in a Scandi-Japanese combination of textile patterns. Tengai means horizon in Japanese.
This piece was created on a wood box panel and has a 2" edge. I continue the painting on the edges therefore no frame is required. I do so that one can enjoy the work from any angle and it stays on its own without the distraction of a frame.
It is signed with my original hanko, or Japanese artist seal, for authenticity, and signed on the back.
