TEMPO - warm side - 48" - 60" - 40" - TEMPO - cool side
For background on the painted boxes I call 'Pylons' check out this link for a few previous posts. And my website page featuring the whole series. The more recent post involves a freestanding set of three which I call 'Tempo' and feel are finally complete after several attempts to wind them up... you can imagine that a four sided painting (times three) can have a mind of it's own which keeps offering up new ways of expression. Sometimes you just have to be firm, put a final coat on it and sign the darn things!
FRAGMENTS, GARNET and GOLD - 48" - wall pieces - texture buildup process
Usually, my pylons are wall hung in sets of two or three... though created as sets, often are sold separately. My most recent pair were wall pieces and I decided to use bits and pieces of textured paper and cloth to build up the painting surface. This really took control of the options left to me so after many applications (necessary in my process anyway) I went with a rather simple glazing, allowing the texture to be the main focus. They received the ultimate compliment before I made it home from the gallery the next day ;)
I've order more boxes from my in-house carpenter... this series may evolve... not sure how, but it's not over yet.
