Jupiter

This piece developed out of experimentation in color blocking and classical oriental composition. Like my other work, the patterning in the background is achieved through high water to pigment ratio paint application. This allows the color mixtures to be as organic as possible, and allows for a wider range of contrast. Also like my other work, this piece uses high-voltage electricity to create the burnt black lines emanating from the center.

Unlike my other work, this painting employs acrylic spray paint to help highlight the color-blocked center region. The circular shape was achieved with a stencil, which was used to block the center from both the gouache patterning and the spray acrylic.

Finally, the whole piece was coated in polyurethane to help intensify to color palette and to seal the gouache paint.
