Ready to Hang
This richly textured abstract pits cool blues against underlying glimpses of scorching magma. The volcanic sculpture is constructed of matte super heavy gel. I pierced the top, opened the peak with a palette knife and pulled back the sides as if peeling an orange. This was a fun piece to create, extending beyond the use of brushes and paint. This piece offers the observer an endless array of interpretive prompts.
Wire attached, ready to hang.
I create art as a release, as a vehicle for all the emotions and thoughts that are relevant but don't quite have a place in my common-sense, everyday life. Art allows me to address the irrational, add and subtract colors, work at the pace of ideas, and communicate in the unspoken language of art.
