Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Paper on Wood.

"The Rose of Strange Places", 2015, acrylic on wood, 24 inches wide by 30 inches tall (60 x 75 cm).

A fantastic landscape of crystalline structures, folded space, and filigree clouds is dominated by a single rose, the one stable object in the chaos. This picture evokes the arcane and often beautiful symbolism of alchemy and magic.

Acrylic paint and plaster dust are layered with broad curves of cut paper in natural brown and moss green, then sanded. This process is repeated to create a complex and ambiguous surface. On this surface -- and re-establishing its flatness -- are filigree patterns in white, off-white, gray and green, suggesting clouds. Hovering above everything is a red rose, painted in a naturalistic style in acrylic.

This picture is ready to hang; signed and dated both front and back, with the title on the back.
