Phenomena

2013 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

Phenomena is a triptych funnel painting of a wave from my Phenomena Series. My painting technique is very unique in that I paint with a funnel. Every painting is an experiment. I don't know what will happen when certain paints I use go down the funnel, they will either mix or resist one another and eventually settle. I go in with a general idea of what I want to paint then I have to be able to say, "that's it" and I wait to see what happens. The painting will change from it's initial pouring. I do not touch it what so ever. I just let it decide what will happen. The result is mesmerizing to the eye. No two paintings will ever be alike, they are truly one of a kind. If you look closely at Phenomena you may see hearts, a loch ness monster, a mother holding a baby, spots that are reminiscent of stained glass, the possibilities are endless. Every time it is viewed you find new imagery.
