"YOUR OWN ADVENTURE" (in Ultraviolet light)by XRAY
ABOUT THE ART
This is a photographic representation of a 3' X 4' hand-crafted painting created with fluorescent acrylic paint, wood, and resin with masking, spray-gun and airbrush technique. These are designed by hand on a full size paper template. They require a lot of tedious work!
In this series I wanted to achieve a "synthetic corporate manufactured" quality with the materials and tools that I had available. The end effect looks more machined than hand-crafted. The shiny, plastic surface of the painting creates a unique effect in the image. The paintings are "symbolic equations" influenced by Kool-aid and candy packages, tarot cards, military insignia, totem poles, cereal boxes and skateboard, psychedelic and vector art among other things...
