"Acid" (acrylic on canvas, 18x22" Feb 2012
When this idea came to mind, I wanted to play on a pre-stretched canvas with four basic colors: red, black, tan, and brown. I wasn't sure how stark and cold and "other-worldly" this would appear to others, but it was created for my development. I was playing and exploring options! While it was an experiment, I was surprisingly pleased with the results. In contrast to its corrosive nature, it seemed appropriate to go "green" for this piece by re-using window trim that had been removed from my loft to create my own frame... leaving its nicks and nail holes untouched. I painted it in a bold red. The overall effect was rather striking! -Erico
