Comely - 12"x12" Original Painting

350.00

Through November 8, this painting is available through Artspan. Please contact them at (415) 861-9838 or info@artspan.org to purchase.

This is an original painting, 12"x12" acrylic and fabric on 1.5" deep cradled panel. The sides of this piece are birchwood that's been sanded and finished, so the piece can be hung without a frame. 

"Comely" has a lot of texture variation to go with its stripes and floral patterns. I incorporated crackle effects as well as matte and gloss surfaces.

I offer worldwide shipping, rush shipping, and framing options - please contact me for details.

The Attraction series

My painting practice is fundamentally an exploration of surface through pattern, color, and texture. I have a magpie-like attraction to bright, colorful, decorated objects, but an orderly mind, a love for the grid and a strong schooling (from my architectural design studies) to mistrust the superficial. These contradictory urges come together in my paintings. I work in many layers of acrylic media, starting with a repeating fabric design at the base and adding elements both rigid and planned (geometric stencil repeats) and loose and unplanned (drips, washes, crackled layers). Abstracted floral forms and decorative elements make an appearance, like dreams of old-fashioned textiles. With these paintings, I celebrate the surface.
