From the Fresh Hell Series
30x30 | Plaster, Enamel & Oil on Canvas | SOLD
This piece was originally going to be just a glimpse of a happy man enjoying his afternoon in the sun with the woman bringing out cool refreshments, but the thick layers of Fresh Hell took over the scene. As I was finishing it, the woman being so invisible didn’t feel complete to me, so I elected to have her almost emerging through the layers: a way to empower her and give her a presence. The paint is layered with plaster and sanded down to expose the history: the situation is not something shiny and new, it has age and layers.
