the sculptural painting

Jovanni Luna's avatar Jovanni Luna

Instinctual repetitive actions of layering, cutting and rolling the paint, course throughout this work. Each additional layer of material obscuring the actions before it, allowing only subtle cues to be seen in the end: hints of color, gentle textures, subtle brush strokes. I consciously determine the layout of each piece, a simplistic look from afar and a complex design up close. The final object need not objectively be determined a painting, sculpture, or installation; rather the work is about the laborious and tender process.
