Geological Abstract Painting, "Copper Illusion" © Carol Nelson Fine Art

This abstract has a geological feel to it, as many of my abstracts do. I used acrylic modeling paste to build up the copper colored elements and create additional surface texture on the canvas. The copper areas have metal leaf applied. The copper leaf was then carefully treated with copper sulfate solution to create an authentic black patina on the metal. The rest of the painting was done with artist quality acrylic paint (Golden brand).

'Interstice - Monochrome V', another Piece in the Series of Abstract Encaustic Works by Colorado Contemporary Artist, Susan M. Gibbons




Interstice - Monochrome V

Encaustic on Cradled Board

36" x 36" x 1.5"

$2800

Yet another piece in the series of Interstice - Monochrome works.  One of the definitions of Interstice means, 'the space in between' which is the inspiration for this work.  The piece has a minimal approach to the idea with just one band of black within the color field of white.  The subtleties within the white area play against the deepness of the black area.  Also, the play of edges is an important feature within this work as the opposite values brings out the contrast between the two areas.

Mixed Media Abstract Painting, "Ticket to Ride" © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Ticket to Ride" 30x40 mixed media painting by Carol Nelson

This is a remake of an older painting I never really loved, so I gave it new life. There is a lot of texture with molding paste, tyvek, and corrugated paper.

The color palette is one of my favorites: Dioxazine Purple, Quin Nickel Azo Gold, and Quin Magenta. Of course there's some other colors in there too, but those are the big three.

'Interstice - Monochrome II', an Encaustic Work by Colorado Contemporary Abstract Artist, Susan M. Gibbons



Interstice - Monochrome II

Encaustic on Cradled Board

36" x 36"

$2800

This piece is the second in the Interstice - Monochrome Series.  Based on the idea of Interstice - the space in between, the work exemplifies the play of space, textures, contrasts, and movement.  Working with the medium of encaustic (pigmented bees wax plus damar resin), the translucency of the paint allows for the subtleties of layers and color.  Using the concept of opposites, they define each other and make each other known, thus enhancing the contrast within the painting.

'Interstice - Monochrome I' by Colorado Contemporary Abstract Artist, Susan M. Gibbons



"Interstice - Monochrome I"
Encaustic on Cradled Board
36" x 36"
$2800


This work is the first in the series of Monochrome Paintings.  Incorporating the idea of Interstice: the space in-between, the work exemplifies the interaction of edges, space and contrast.  The integration and disintegration of the edges, the rhythm and movement, and separation and division of the picture plane allows for the awareness of opposites: the play of black and white.  The interstices present the rhythms of life, passages of time, and a place of being.

“Techknowledgy Scientist” by Colorado mixed media artist Lisa Eisenhardt

Technology has a way of getting in our heads. It has changed how a person's brain develops. I think it has outgrown us. I don't adore or abhor computers, social media, or technology in general. It is here and part of my life. I just don't want to end up having it run my life. I do not want chips in my head either – like the scientist in this mixed media piece. My motivation started with smart phone copper displays. This is a highly texturized piece with lots of layering using gels, mono prints I have made, and of course the tech chips and displays. I see something new every time I look at now.
