Running with Scissors



Title: Running with Scissors

Large Size: 36” x 36” x 1.5”

“Running with scissors” is the third composition from my industrial series of modern abstract geometric minimalism paintings. It arouses both sight and touch while challenging the senses with bold high-energy spaces of brightly animated color and riveting metallic textures. Additional point of interest is achieved as the shapes are activated over a striped background with alternated gloss and matte varnished applications. This process of both matte and glossy intensifies the design and a special varnish used on silver leaf to prevent tarnishing.

I used acrylics, acrylic medium for texture, with combination of gold and silver foil leafing to give the observer a unique 3D experience of smooth yet strong presence.

Stunning, I'm so impressed about the way you did the 'scissors', at first glance, I was so sure you took a photo and collaged with it!

Thank you so much. I hope it brings the station some big cash at the auction. I have no idea how it will come across over the T.V.
