Entirely Thick Acrylics on Gallery Wrapped Canvas
(1 & 1/2 inch Deep)
These pipe coral tubes are made of literal thick dried sheets of entirely thick acrylic paint peeled off the palette, called paintskins, rolled into shape and painted with gritty textures and pearl paints. The pipe coral paint sculptures are mounted to a canvas to hold the sculptures upright and are attached to each other in some places to provide a structure for this somewhat flexible medium to be supported. The background is a classy silver and white texture on a heavy duty gallery wrapped canvas that holds this wall sculpture.
This highly dimensional abstract city of pipe coral blues, purple, and turquoise green pearl highlights has captivated many an eye, from appearing like a bouquet of coral vases to a coralscape of pipe dreams looking like a city of tube sponges underwater. Some even say it is pipe organ madness exploding into different views as you change angles in looking at it. Long list of publicity for this sculptured piece.
