A recent experiment that I consider a success. This was obviously deeply inspired by the striped color field paintings of Washington Color School painter, Gene Davis. Some years ago I developed a simple but effective digital technique for producing works similar to this one. While those pieces proved reasonably popular, they looked quite anonymous to my eyes, and definitely lacked a Grunwellean stamp.
I wasn't keen on exploring these techniques with acrylic paint, so it wasn't until this past April that I settled on a method for creating satisfactory stripe-based color fields by hand. This is the result.
I am very interested in working on much larger scales, and in different aspect ratios. The ultimate execution of this concept involves a re-entry into the digital realm, and the subsequent printing of flawless versions of these pieces on bright, glass-like aluminum surfaces, such as those used by fellow Artomatic artist, Leslie Albin
, whose work can be seen in space #190 on the 9th floor, and purchased at her Etsy shop
If you're anything like me, you'll agree that glossy, metallic surfaces are absolutely ideal for work of this nature!
