Aqua Light was made with acrylic paint and silkscreen mesh.
Painting on silkscreen mesh allows me to make large, thin, colorful, fabric “skins". Shaped spontaneously, painted silkscreen mesh is pushed and pulled; folded or rolled; cut and glued on canvas. Silkscreen mesh can be applied in layers.
The sculptural quality of high relief is something I picked up from painters who used thick gel and accretions. I found a way to build out the surface using silkscreen mesh.
This method evolved over years of trial and error, following a run of paintings which transferred acrylic paint from plastic sheeting.
