“Experimental Blues (Dyptic),” acrylic on canvas, 3' x 4',   2021

This large painting diptych has blue, teal, green, peach, purple, yellow, black, and white colors. I worked to alter the forms, light, colour saturation, and depth of space in the painting. The fast-drying acrylic paint allowed me to build up thin layers and texture, and make adjustments more quickly than I would be able to with oils. Over multiple painting sessions I worked to create variety in the shapes, lines, planes and spatial depth. 

As I worked on these paintings, I felt compelled to paint quickly and in loose gestural marks with huge brushes. Over multiple studio sessions, I built up paint washes, bold brushstrokes, palette knife marks, and paint directly squeezed from the tube on the canvas. As I added layers and textures with paint, the image became more lively and abstracted. I worked to alter the colour saturation and vary the elements and depth of space in the paintings.

The original painting is signed on the back and was painted in 2021.
