This is the beginning of a series of a more modern urban Color Field/Expressionist method I thought might become popular today. My aim in the entirety of this series is human action without the body itself. The split "Color Field" composition is used to portray cognitive "optimism bias," or the personal choice to ignore serious issues the world faces on a daily basis such as energy consumption, global food stability, clean water consumption, etc. The absence of the actual body represents western society's consumption and preoccupation with busy daily lives without a thought toward simple things most of the world remains without. I have seen this circumstance firsthand during my time overseas and in the war.
This series is completed on 2" thick wrapped-canvas with paint wrapping around the sides.
I vary techniques and style and medium within my work regularly because so much inspires me every day. I have a handful of different types of work finished in the last few months, including detailed watercolors, fine pencil drawings, and varying acrylics. I am partial to Impressionist works by many artists of the mid to late 1800's, but I'll try to contain myself to at least a series of similar works for you before experimenting with new medium and technique. I have most recently finished a small series of some urban Modern Expressionism which I think you'll enjoy and will continue. I can always create something previously seen here or similar if anyone would like!
Hi everyone! My name is Patrick Dukovac. I am a Vango artist. All types of art and creation have been a part of my life from the beginning. After practicing for many years as a child and teenager, I graduated and went to war for some youthful naive reason. I have recently returned to this process of creation (along with aid work and philanthropic donation) to find peace and balance after my participation overseas. Thank you for visiting my portfolio and I hope you enjoy my work!
