oil and cold wax on cradled panel
Hologram, 11″x 14″ oil and cold wax on Arches oil paper, mounted to 1 1/2″ cradled panel. Unframed. This artwork can hang directly on your wall.
This painting has gone through multiple versions of completion. One of the beautiful features of cold-wax medium is how paintings can continue to evolve. After applying a new layer it may change completely from something you thought was near complete, to not anywhere close. However, if you embrace this stage, you know it will come back eventually to something different, that you love again. All of those layers that build up add and enhance the end result.
Hologram began as a painting of a fairly well-detailed grey jumper cantering. I began distorting it by layering in cold wax. At one point, I was so frustrated with it, I scraped nearly all the cold wax off to the base of the horse painting that was within the lower layers. I then layered again…and again…the horse began to take on a photographic quality that was distorted yet, still recognizable. I ran with it and began to accent with colour and texture, eventually getting to a stage of completion that I loved.
