If Walls Can Talk

Antonio Molinari's avatar Antonio Molinari

I was inspired to paint this piece because I recall admiring the openness of the land, and the rays of light dancing across the fields in my hometown. Living in the Detroit area now, I think back to my childhood where I developed my love for color and shape. I began creating these large scale works because I love bending the canvas, and letting gravity create beautiful layers and color combinations. This one in particular, is full of vibrant colors, and layers of color blending. With pouring paint, I am never certain of how each piece will be completed. This is exciting for me because it's always a pleasant surprise when I am finished. With this, I am able to take my knowledge of color blending, and layering to create similar pieces like this. If Walls Can Talk is one of my personal favorites because of the color movements and tranquil negative spaces. I think it looks like sheer layers of silk moving together in a rhythmic dance to create a prism of colors.
