So I thought I’d finish off this week with some commissioned work that I completed in February.
The color scheme and media were based off of a piece I’d made a few years ago, “Lacrimo”.
Since the client wanted two pieces I knew I’d get a better continuity between them by creating two at once instead of trying to match the single piece I’d created two years ago. Beginning with layers of concrete applied by hand to the wood panels, I made texture & designs on each panel, as well as drops and bumps of concrete across the surface as well.
Once dried that layer was sealed and then I began the layering process with thin layers of acrylic. Adding more neutral colored layers followed by bright colors I built up the design on the concrete bit by bit.
Eventually it was time for the finishing layers, more sealer and to choose a direction for them to hang.
It was actually the clients idea to hang them at an angle, they look great that way! I really enjoyed being able to create these pieces, what would you like me to create for you?
