Title: Post-Traumatic Departure
Size: 24″ x 30″
Medium: Acrylic on canvas with finished sides and edges, brush varnished with MSA gloss with UVLs.
This abstract painting is achromatic, painted in Mars Black, Ivory Black, and Titanium White, with intermixed gray tones. Layers of paint balance out the black, white and gray shapes and lines with scraping, brushing, stamping, and lifting the paint to create a thickly-painted textural surface. Gloss MSA varnish accentuates the black shapes and reflects light off the white shapes for a dimensional surface that will hold the viewer’s attention. The title interplays with the texture to evoke a feeling of past stress and trauma in the mark-making methods for this painting.
Painting is wired at the back for frameless display, with painted and varnished sides of canvas in Ivory Black. Ready for immediate wall mounting.
