DD011219 The Forest From The Trees
This piece introduces poured and splattered glossy paint into the work which creates a dynamic contrast with thin matte washes. The highlights on the shiny surfaces dance as the viewer changes vantages points while looking at the work. My work always plays between flat and three dimensional space but I have brought this to the forefront in this piece. My intention was not to directly reference landscape painting but as the work developed it began to suggest light piercing through the trees when one is walking through the forest.
