I refer to the pieces in this on-going series as assembled paintings.
They are on hard board, using papers I created with acrylic paints.
The papers are torn into strips, or free-form shapes,
and then applied like brush strokes to a painted background.
There is something very satisfying about creating a 'painting' with this technique.
I think it's the unusual texture, so different from any effect created by applying color directly to a surface, but also because the layers create an intriguing sense of depth.
And that ties to theme I have been working on for several years: change.
The composition above, 'The Golden Hour', references change in nature, the change in light and shadow at different hours of the day..
'Color Formation 1' is an abstract representation of change in motion, change as it happens.
The strokes of color are coalescing and forming something new.
Both compositions are available as prints.
