About the Work

Many rich layers of acrylic paint and acrylic gel create depth in this painting. The colors and light shift as the viewer moves around the painting. Dragged horizontally across the canvas are thick bands of blue, black, orange, red, yellow and green acrylic paint. Appropriating a method of scraping akin to printmaking, and using various tools such as aluminum moulding, the artist repeatedly applies colourful layers of paint and gel-medium to the already glazed canvas surface. The result is a highly complex and texturized piece, whose left-to-right movement mimics the directional reading of a musical score.
