I was invited to take part in a charity event for the Children's Hospital. This exhibitions was in conjunction with May the 4th be with you so logically it was a Star Wars themed show. Here is my contribution.
This was after I prepped the canvas, spray painted, and set my background image.
Gustav Klimt and Hot Rods started my love affair with gold leaf.
You can see I had some cut outs to help me line up my screen.
New work coming together for a show in Teaneck, NJ.
I had originally planned on just doing an under painting and then screen-printing my image on top but it wasn't the aesthetic that I was searching for. However, I quite loved the fur on the forearm so I chose to keep it. The juxtaposition between the flatness, or illustrative quality of the rest of the painting, versus the subtle hints of process and print quality create a collage effect that I find aesthetically pleasing.
Unfortunately I was unable to get a finished shot of my new painting before it went up in the gallery.
The Grassy Noel Gallery used my painting as a promotional tool for the exhibition.
