She Taught Me About The Insanity Of The Angels…
35″x 56″ All white acrylic paint on Canvas with a black ground.
2017
This work is an all white painting on a black ground, that is I painted it using several different whites from several different water based paints from acrylic titanium white to antique white house paint to off white wall paint. All these paints where then each, individually, mixed with joint compound and Goldens heavy body clear medium for consistency. In a perfect world, white is a combination of all color, but we don’t live in a perfect world so each white is tinted slightly towards one color or another. Normally you would not see the color until you put it next to another “white”, for example a warmer white with a red/orange tint next to a cooler “white” with a blueish tint. Next to each other, that tiny amount of color then vibrates off each other as it would in a full color. The black is from the priming of the canvas as well as the charcoal sub drawing.
