Oil Paint, Printed on Canvas
Peony Diptych was an experimental artwork used to understand the fiscal differences of a work that was created with tools originally intended for alternate mediums. I created the floral tattoo-like design on paper and cut it to be a stencil, then proceeded to 'paint' using rollers intended for lino-cut printing, while using impasto oil paint. The resulting image was bright in some areas, yet subdued and inverted in the peonies. Warm and inviting, this painting would welcome a closer look and would look good hung any distance apart from one another.
