"It's a Numbers Game" is one of my favorite pieces using acrylic paint, oil bar and mixed media. In this piece I incorporate metal washers for a 3-D effect.
Many layers have been scratched off to show the colors peeking out from underneath. This has a post modern rough aesthetic that I love.
I am a culinary artist as well as an abstract artist. I work in acrylics, oil bar, india ink, charcoal, graphite and china marker. I mainly use palette knives, brushes, my fingers and anything else lying around that will help me achieve my vision. Each piece I create has many hidden layers that are put down then scratched off to reveal part of the truths underneath. I continue to build upon each layer until I feel I have covered and uncovered it's truth. I then intuitively know when the piece is done. Alternatively, since I have a culinary background, this is how I create in the kitchen. I layer and season each of the ingredients appropriately until I have my finished edible piece. I find the end result in both cases can be quite provocative, if not delicious.
