In late 2023 I realized that one the truly unique aspect of my artwork was the combination of traditional metal patinas with liquid metal coatings (primarily copper) and iron particles forming what I call “rust patinas.” My goal is to create large wall pieces that have aesthetic components that are both contemporary and abstract. To that end, I have started working exclusively on canvas. The pieces below all represent various iterations of composition, texture, color combinations and other variables. I started with smaller canvases in order to rapidly prototype my ideas, learn from my mistakes and keep what works for the next series as I increase size. All of the materials used here are easily scalable to substantively larger sized canvas.
