Re: Metallic Works

I like the warm tones and the movement of the top piece. Did the substrate warp at all, or are those just light reflections?

Re: Metallic Works

Love your metallic pieces, Ted, so shiny and contemporary! Are they on paper?

Re: Metallic Works

Haven't come across anything yet that don't warp in some way or other the aluminium boards are touted not to but poss all sales hype. Anyhoo ..like the negative spaces ..interesting muscle memory who knows where it comes from? Rounded soft shapes and squares. You are interested in the lines and shapes ..why is that? and at different times of day ? is it due to the change in light reflecting of the metallic medium? Was it executed quickly? was it a rendition of an object? Sorry for all the questions is just I am appreciating the enthusiasm and joy taken and executed in your work and curious to know the motivating factor.. I am no expert critic ..the only thing I would say is research something that don't warp is paper reacting to medium ..medium is poss waterbased ..only reason I say that is that the light hits the raised spots perhaps in a way you had not wanted? Also explore the negative spaces produced by these geometric shapes (these shapes are the natural building blocks of any artist) but it gets even more exciting delving into the negative spaces ..even turning your work upside down and drawing on that for further inspiration(which I doubt you need) and even drawing/painting upside down when looking at your chosen subject matter to paint draw etc..( not unheard of for artists to hang upside down when painting or turning a piece upside down when copying it..reason I say this is because the brain when looking at or viewing and trying to paint or draw something from a reversed position makes the brain confused and it can no longer rely on the ordinary cues and signs to produce something in a way that is logical or well it is like throwing away the rule book and brain forced to acess and produce form it's creative side it realy opens up a whole new world artistically speaking..but that is just something I am personly looking into is just a suggestion :/

It is interesting actually that when we express ourselves creatively producing art in this way and not for example non creatively( with left side of our brain if you like) that we are able to naturally easily access the talent to produce perfect geometric shapes..like the way you work
