The acrylic paintings are made using a process that I have been
developing over the past several years. They are characterized by
their smooth gloss finish, and the use of multiple translucent layers.
The paintings are composed mainly of acrylic medium, which I pour while the
painting is horizontal. I use wooden panels to support these pours
while they are drying. In between these smooth, clear layers, I work
with various media, including pencil, pen, and dispersed pigments mixed in
more acrylic medium. Close inspection of a painting will reveal the
structure of the layers, which do not necessarily follow the pictorial
layering (e.g. the "foreground" of the image is often on one of the deepest
layers, whereas the "background" is often one of the last layers painted).
The final layer or layers are always pure medium, giving the painting a
uniform glossy surface.
