Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Marker on Canvas.

The weight of the hammer striking down creates an explosion of force which causes the paint to race outward and perform unpredictable maneuvers twisting in mid-air and skimming the surface of the canvas like skipping pebbles on a pond. The intensity often causes a hole which I have learned to live with, leaving a hole that pierces through leaves room to apply a paint-soaked patch to the back of the work adding color to the ruptured canvas which dries; highlighting the aftermath of the event in much greater dimension.
