Description

This is one of my gold pigment experiment.
The base is a 19.75″×19.75″ framed wood sign board. I seal it and gesso it. The background is painted with acrylic. Once it is dry, I glue pretreated wood slices on it and paint with gold pigment. Those wood slices are sanded and stained in different color, finishing with polyurethane. They still have bark on them.
The wood sign board comes with two saw tooth hanging hardware on the top back so this piece is ready to hang.
This piece is made by hand so it is not machine like “clean cut”. The gold pigment will shine under certain lighting angle. In another word, you may find the color looks different under different lighting condition.
I hope you enjoy this piece.
Please feel free to ask me any question. 😀

My paintings are an outlet to express the imagination I have inside my head that I can not put into words. After trying many mediums, I always find myself coming back to paint and brushes. In my current artistic practice, I use oil paint and mainly create portraits of mythical creatures and animals transfixed in the shifting colours of seascapes and landscapes. There is a natural spirit and magic to these creatures and their energy draws me in. Choosing to paint these creatures as real living wildlife rather than abstractions, I use bold and vivid colours to express the imaginary intertwined with reality, finding magic between the seams. Using a saturated colour palette, I create bold and striking imagery, contrasted between foreground and background, subject and landscape, and light and darkness. Weaving their bodies and the surface of the landscape into each other through organic forms and flowing brush strokes, I find beauty, strength and innocence in these creatures that reflect my inner world.
