Dreaming in Gold
Steel wire, copper wire, leafing gold,
acrylic on canvas - gallery wrap
48" W x 24" H
This is the fourth installment in an ongoing series of dream painting. The thing that sets this work apart from the others in the series is sculptural elements of wire and a split canvas. This lets the viewer see through the painting letting it's background effect how it is seen. With a dark background, a gold band can be seen floating in the center of each wire. When a light background is applied, the gold seems to disappear leaving the wires looking incomplete.
