Painting: Oil, Charcoal, Black & White, Paint, Environmental on Wood, Other.
This work is a part of a series of new paintings done in a combination of oil paint, ashes and charcoal. Wood panel on which this painting is made is first burned to an even black, then rubbed with a combination of ashes and charcoal to a sooty matte finish. At this stage it is ready to paint. Only white water-mixable paint is used to paint the image in many layers. In this way the image is quite literally 'pulled' out of the blackness of the surface. Subjects in the series include nostalgia, ruins, smoke and ash clouds from fires and volcanoes, mountains, conspiracy theories and occult themes.
