Last week I shot a few more paintings as part of my portfolio update. This piece is called Absolute’s Complement: Asymmetry. The piece has many layers of translucent paint that creates the feel of undulating rust. This glazing process allows for a surface that is entirely flat with only the appearance of texture. Similarly, the hand-built frame has a wash over the surface to give it a more weathered look.
What’s your sacred place? Where do you go to contemplate?
If you’re at all familiar with my blog, you’ve no doubt gotten to know me a little. I’m the type of person who likes to venture out on little day-trips to get into the right mental spot. Building a little bit of happiness ‘to go’ into my workday is crucial for my creative process. Especially during the warmer seasons.The pursuit of the right materials and thinking spaces for the latest two “Absolute” paintings has taken me on a journey that has spanned through woods, over miles of railroad tracks, into an apparently abandoned man-made prairie, and even atop of a 2,000 year old Adena Native American burial mound. Read onward to see the whole process.
