Ready to Hang
I always point out how much "fun" it is to create certain pieces. I believe it's important to know the kind of energies that went into the making of the art. This was quite a tactile experience for me as the artist as I applied the paints directly to the canvas with my hands. It's a sensory experience that I truly appreciated and enjoyed, as I was able to blend, push, drag, and manipulate the paints in ways that are dulled through use of other tools. The canvas was prepped with random flat spreads of matte super heavy gel that adds to the texture. There's a lot of joy in this piece!
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.
