I painted this golden, blue and teal background last year and there is sat... until I painted the large pink/red swirl. It popped against the teal and my alien surrealistic landscape began to take shape. After several additional layers and additions I felt the push and pull of the vortex on the land below. Very much inspired by the imagery in the movie, "Interstellar," I was reminded of the event horizon the main character witnesses as he slips into the black hole - which is where I got the name. Then it was simply a matter of many, many meticulous hours of fine white, red and black line work to complete the piece. (See in comments section for an image of the pre-detailing stage.)
The piece has been professionally double-matted in a 3" wood frame, under glass.
Frances Jemini grew up watching her graphic-artist mother create art out of paper, cardboard, fabric, oil paints - you name it - and has thus tended towards artistic interests her whole life. It led her to study architecture at Virginia Tech, which is where she began creating acrylics and mixed-media artwork. Her style has been described as expressionist abstract centering mainly on the use of bold colors and deep textures and reflects her strong architectural background. Currently residing in Athens, Georgia Frances has also been greatly influenced by the local artist scene and enjoys incorporating avant-garde materials into her work. Her multimedia designs and artwork consist of found materials including cardboard, sheet vinyl, plastic, old credit cards, string and junkyard metal.
