Homely - 36"x36" Original Painting

1,900.00

This is an original painting, 36" x 36" 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. 

“Homely” has a base of eyelet lace fabric, the pattern of which shows through subtly. I also incorporated a wallpaper pattern from the 1940s, which I recreated by hand on the painting. This piece incorporates rich reds and greens, with pops of butter yellow.

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.
