jacaranda 48x48" thrown paint on canvas 2014
Beverly Hills artShow 2014
jacaranda has taken over two years to complete. not because it was a bad painting, there have been more precise renderings of a tree, but none portrayed what i am trying to portray as an artist.
i throw paint. which lends a quality of chaos i wouldn't get if i applied it differently. it is in that chaos that i try to discover the essence of the subject matter, not the subject matter itself. the painting on top is an impressionist view of a jacaranda, not a photographic one. i am an impressionist with an abstract technique. my work should reflect that. this jacaranda, with it's impasto texture, and pointillist nature now does just that.
