Radiating Luminescence

Matthew Smolinski's avatar Matthew Smolinski

My latest artistic exploration combines collage and painting in acrylic. The patterns in the paper collaged onto the watercolor background create a contrast. Then, I eschew brushes in favor of spatulas and knives to appy the acrylic. This provides an immediacy i enjoy working with and pushes the collage into the background, yet still provides depth to the art. I have several pieces in this series with a wide range of sizes and colors. Some are more subdued while others are more vibrant. The last five pieces shown in "past works" on my artist page are from this series. I would be willing to work with the right venue to place one piece or the entire series. Let me know your space availability. Thanks for looking...
