Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
Acrylic on canvas.
The construction of the painting is a set of playful experiments in the viscoelastic properties of acrylic gel and liquid media. These media dry transparent and can be tinted with transparent paint colors, rendered translucent with opaque and semi-opaque colors, swirled, extruded, and poured over one another in various stages of drying. A wide range of layered and intertwined transparent patterns can be generated, with an incredible depth of color.
Gel medium was extruded through fine round, fancy ruffled and multi hole nozzles using a pastry bag. The medium was lightly tinted. When extruded it forms shining light manipulating ribbons and nests of "acrylic vermicelli", which can be obscured by a tinted clear film layer or piled up to create crazy clear gelid textures on the canvas.
Coriolis was built up in layers, starting with a background painted in rough brushstrokes that established the helical symmetry. Swirled transparent liquid media created loose, spiraling smoke-like colored textures. Thicker transparent media, extruded trough a pastry bag, creates raised textured lines that reinforce the spiral. The raised lines also serve as liquid barriers for subsequent pours of tinted media with color swirled through it.
