"Come a Little Closer"

Acrylic on paper

 

“Come a Little Closer” is a small works series in which I focus on exploring color, accidental composition and the manipulation of the opaque and transparent properties of various pigments.

In this series I like to use unconventional tools to apply my colors and employ a concept whereby paint is dragged by various means over a textured surface, allowing the paint to pool in the lower recesses of the surface and conversely scrape away paint from the upper peaks and ridges. It is a process in which the previous textured layers of paint affect or even dictate the behavior of the proceeding layers.The layering process creates subtle to complex gradation and sometimes, when you look a little closer, accidental imagery is revealed through the multiple layers of pattern and color.
