New Abstract Work 2012


I finished “Rusty Cage” this month. I have been working on and off on this piece for almost a year. The canvas has about 15 layers of super heavy textured paint mixed with found objects. I call it art therapy through abstract expressionism. I paint without using intent and continue to add layers until I feel the piece has arrived. I also like to take photos at various stages to reveal all of the changes. This work ties in with my teaching at Special Care this month by using various tools like brayers, palette knives, stamps, squeegies, string, sticks and any other thing you can use to make texture. I think the kids will enjoy this tactile journey as much as I did. This work and “Gold & Ivory” is currently on view at Art Wear.
