About Galaxy

Translucent layers of periwinkle, blue and steel-grey compose the background of this rich and energetic painting.  Dragged horizontally across the canvas are thick bands of black, white, 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 these 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.
