  • two paintings in modern living room

    At left:

    65 MILLION YEARS AGO    96”wide x 48” tall    This work on hardwood is in some respects the most visually spectacular and dynamic, not only for its size (8 feet long) but because it depicts one of the most critical, fiery moments in geological history -- the instant before the gigantic comet struck the sea and caused the "extinction event" that wiped out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago... and set the stage for the eventual "rise of mammals" and mankind.

     

    Right:

     FOUR CORNERS SUNSET     48” x 48”   

    The narrow, upright "chimney-like" mesas reminiscent of

    Monument Valley and geological formations near Four Corners, are from blue jeans.

collaboration

 

 

 

In this unique collaboration, the two artists have found materials and subject matter that convey something quite indescribable!  Sometimes humorous, and sometimes quite romantic, they should be viewed in person to appreciate their deep textures and extraordinary detail.

Most of the art is on stretched canvas, but some pieces are on alderwood (hardwood) with treated surface.  The three-dimensional elements in the art are mainly of treated cloth that is hardened to a completely stiff state with epoxy and various resins.  Epoxy resin also creates the glossy surface that has been painted over using oil paints with fast-drying alkyd. 
The cloth is in most cases blue jeans, although sometimes clouds may be from T-shirts or flowers may be from dresses.  Some of the art has polished traventine or polished onyx (stone) incorporated that suggests cliffs or mesas or stones on a beach.
