Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas, Steel.

The flower shapes in this painting were originally found in a vintage botanical illustration book, which were collaged into the pattern. The image was projected onto the canvas, drawn and filled in, then outlined. When applying the paint, it would frequently spill out of the shapes and drip onto the background. Struggling to keep the paint within the confines of their boundaries, I began to embrace their flaws. As a tattoo artist and painter, I often think of canvas like skin. My paintings then become a metaphor for the human body – imperfectly perfect, displaying its own history and narrative on the surface.

Another goal I had with this piece was to make something appear as equally decorative as it is utilitarian. By putting grommets on the corners, it functions as both a painting and a protectant veil, just like skin of the body.
