Art Description

Painting: Ink, acrylic, Paint, Watercolor on Wood.

This work explores the origin of objects, and what drives creativity in an impermanent world. I paired synthetic mediums with natural materials to create a dichotomy of permanent and impermanent layers through the repetition of a singular shape. This creates a distinct visual difference between the field on top (synthetic) and the lower field of view (organic), forcing viewers to think differently about the overall form of the piece and why certain creative choices are made, or why we make anything at all. This piece of wood could have more easily been left blank, or not existed at all.
