This is the first piece in an abstract series I did in 2011. It is comprised of two separate cardboard layers, fused together. It represents an experiment in pattern and deviation.
I wanted to examine the compounding nature of contemporary art (visual and non visual); how different works across populations interact, and build off of and upon one another. I also wanted to show how most art is by nature allegorical, with meaning which is not always obvious but often hidden.
As with all my art most of the motivation comes from the process itself i.e. works are in flux and change dramatically from one stage to another. The electrocution process, for example, changes the color and texture of the paint; when the burning is severe enough it allows for access to deeper layers which I paint separately. All of the black in the painting is the strong, burnt, charcoal color.
For this piece I drew from my street-art background. Growing up in Miami, Florida there has always been the strong presence of this art form. The stencil-like appearance of the enlarged stamp pattern, the dripping white gesso, and the bold color contrasts all seem a testament to this.
