Hilltop

Adam Nathaniel Davis's avatar Adam Nathaniel Davis

Hilltop is my latest piece and it is about 3/4 finished (it will be completed well before Art Prize takes place). I will upload pictures of the completed piece when it's finished. Hilltop is an extension of my particular style of painting. It uses heavy-body acrylic paint to achieve an extreme impasto effect. The finished piece will consist of almost 20,000 individual blobs of paint extruded onto the canvas with hundreds of squeeze bottles. Although the piece fits comfortably under any traditional definition of "painting", the finished product will be best seen under directional light and will reveal increasing detail as the viewer moves closer to the canvas. Many of the individual blobs of paint rise almost a full inch above the canvas. This also means that the piece casts its own shadows depending upon light and angle.
