Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Collage on Canvas.

"Bessemer Jack (Ascends to Heaven)", 2018, acrylic, painted paper collage, on canvas. 16 x 20 inches (40 x 50 cm).

This piece is a tribute to the work of artist Jack Whitten, who died in January of this year.

Newspaper pages are painted in a variety of colors, then cut into small shapes and glued over a background of grays and black. The "tesserae" are layered, sanded, and in some places overlaid with a thick covering of tinted gesso, which is then sanded away to reveal the underlying layers.

The collage elements are attached and sealed with acrylic polymer, with a UV protectant added to protect the colors.

This picture is framed and ready to hang.
