Art Description

Painting: Oil and Fabric on Canvas.

"Under The Milky Way" is created with high quality oil and oil stick as well as ripped canvas. I have also used thick German Silver oil stick which gives a really interesting surface in several areas. It is framed in a wood silver leaf float frame that measures 36 1/4" x 48 1/4" and is 2" thick. The work is ready to hang.

Music has been very important to me in creating this current body of work, it quiets the mind and lets me be more in tuned only with the canvas, listening to what's inside. On the back of these works in pencil is a list of songs I listened to while creating as well as a "mini" diary of events.

Current abstract works begin as a vision, a mind scape, where I connect to my subconscious and each mark informs the next. I accomplish this with larger, expressive and intuitive mark-making using thick oil. After my marks are down I reinvestigate the canvas with elements of collage using my own old ripped paintings and textile.

Many of these paintings are monochromatic as I focus on my composition with large confident marks, without the distraction of color. Eventually small vibrant strokes of color do find their way into the painting but only as reinforcement to the overall composition.
