About the artwork

Artwork sold in perfect condition

'Formations' (wall sculpture) is the first work in a new series of mixed-media sculptures that have been inspired by Joyce's love of clay formation and design. The idea is to give the viewer a deeper experience through the various intricacies achieved when using clay on wood as in this case. This work has been created using air-dry clay to slowly build up layers of intrigue. Once dry, the work has been painted in a patina made of layers of gold, burnt umber, and warm white to accentuate areas of interest. The surface is then buffed to a shine in specific areas to mimic a bronze finish. The final result is a light warm pewter grey finish with areas of gold and burnt umber peeking through to accentuate the work's three-dimensional nature. The depth of the artwork is 2 inches (1-inch wood panel + 1 inch at the thickest part of the clay formation) 'Formations' is ready to hang with a wire attached. It will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

STATEMENT

"My paintings are Abstract Expressionist and entirely conceptual. They are bold and passionate created with conviction in response to a specific emotion or state of being. Working medium to large in size I start by randomly applying heavy bodied- Gesso to the canvas to create a geometric design. I then use this design as a template for acrylic paint application. I rarely use colour directly from the tube and prefer instead to mix my own. I feel this lends intimacy to the work. Using large brushes and / or palette knives I allow some paint to drip while scraping out various areas to reveal the under painting. My goal is to say as much as possible without having a big discussion. I want people to see what uniquely speaks to them, depending on their own situation. People see different things in my work. Movement, Colour, and Passion are words I often hear people use when they speak about my work. I have been most influenced by the great Abstract Expressionists of post World War II America. Specifically, I feel my work most resembles what one would see if Robert Motherwell, Franz Kline and Hans Hofmann had collaborated to paint something together."
