'Rhythm', an Abstract Encaustic painting by Colorado Contemporary Artist, Susan M. Gibbons




'Rhythm'

Encaustic on Clayboard

16" x 20"

$500


One of the earlier pieces in the Interstice Series, this painting features varying hues of white within the work.  Gentle layers of white also complement the black bands, softening the edges.  The play of edges, hard and soft add to the contrast within the piece.  Using the idea of music and the beats inherent in it, the title comes from the rhythm created by the movement with the black and white bands.

Mixed Media Abstract Collage, "Billboard 4" © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Billboard 4" 24x18 acrylic collage by Carol Nelson

This abstract collage is the latest in my billboard series. I really enjoy doing collage which, as I see it, is just a series of arranging and gluing papers in a pleasing composition.

Most of the papers were left over scraps from other projects - some failed paintings I had done on paper, others, printed papers I had collected over the years.

'Moving Over', part of the Interstice Series by Colorado Contemporary Encaustic Artist, Susan M. Gibbons




'Moving Over'

Encaustic on Cradled Board

12" x 48" x 1.5"

$1000

Another painting in the Interstice Series, this work plays with the morphing of edges.  Moving from black to white, the hard and diffused edges allow the viewer to 'move over' the piece from right to left or left to right.  Utilizing the definition of interstice - the space in between - the painting allows for different perceptions; are the spaces in between black or white?  Warm and cool hues are presented within the acromatic bands once again accentuating the contrast.

Contemporary Abstract Mixed Media Art Paintings "Copper Caverns" by Contemporary Arizona Artist Pat Stacy

The caverns of our lives often can be represented by symbols--and I have attempted to do that similarly to petroglyphs. The copper is metal paint that turns beautiful blues and greens when patina is applied. Accented by a darker copper in the descending squares, this piece is truly lovely.

"Circle of Life", Original Mixed Media Painting by Colorado Artist, Donna L. Martin

"Circle of Life"

"Circle of Life"
This is my latest painting, fresh off the easel.  Let me tell you, this one was difficult and I feel like there were some painting and life lessons learned with this one!

In Progress

I liked the way it started out, but I felt it needed more texture, something to make it "pop".  So I added some molding paste and let it dry.



Still....in Progress

Then I started adding paint and painted foil.  I still felt like the bird faded into the background.  Then, she began to evolve, patiently, and became more beautiful and interesting with each stroke of paint and each layer.  


Close up of Bird and Texture on Leaves

This little painting is 12X12 and 1.5" deep.  It is available and comes ready to hang.

Feel free to send me questions or comments, or if you are interested in purchasing.

'Transition', part of the Interstice Series by Colorado Contemporary Artist, Susan M. Gibbons




'Transition'

Encaustic on Suede Matboard mounted on Cradled Board

18.5" x 49" x 1.5"

$1700

This painting is part of a larger series of works based on the concept of Interstice (the space in between).  The edges of the areas 'in between' are the focal points of the piece with them morphing and changing from black to white and white to black.  Overlays of iridescent highlight the contrasting bands giving a shimmering effect.  The suede itself plays a part in the play of the piece as it expands the paint into semi-circles.
