A Thousand And One Sacred Places: Paradise 72" x 36"/181 x 91cm
This is a gorgeous large triptych painted on gallery-wrapped canvases with the painting continued on the sides. Really a special piece. It is finished with an unobtrusive, uv-filtering varnish to protect the color.I love the poetry of color and the physicality of the paint, whether it's thick or fluid. It's always colors that move me and there is an adventure of discovery, of seeing how they look on the painting surface and I work to place them so an energetic balance is achieved in combination with the deliciousness of the pigments.
Most of the acrylic paints I use are made by Golden in New York. This employee-owned company inspires me with its commitment to quality and your and my assurance that the paints in the painting you enjoy have excellent light fastness and materials, are made ethically and in work conditions we want for ourselves.
