Art Contests Accepted Artists
Seattle, Washington USA
Cadmium Orange & Ultramarine Blue
In order to explore the limits of color and compound space, I use only two oil colors in each painting. All hue becomes a byproduct of value, and the space becomes confused as nearby values bleed together. By using models, the paintings are kept from becoming entirely abstract, but by repeatedly scraping the canvas and limiting detail in the eyes, identity and personal connection are subverted, moving the focus to the interwoven marks and the interaction of the two pigments.
The result is an identity buried in the space, and a space that moves through the figure, connecting background to foreground, and obscuring a coherent vision of the space or the features of the model.
