hi errbody Smiley

i usually post under the reconstructed clothing section
of craftster.org

... whelps here goes something new.

when i started this piece
my intentions was to produce something abstract and minimal.
alas, the result is different from what i expected.

i see emotions.
what message does this convey to you?

I see all of it  Smiley I see the emotion you were talking about very strongly, but I think it's presented in a minimalist way. Very mod. I like  Grin

My place is usually tidier than this.

OK I'll go first.  I'm kinda nervous because I don't want my comments to be misinterpreted and I don't know how well I will be able to convey it...

I don't know that it "conveys a message" to me exactly, but when I see it I instantly think "train car".  Like the industrial old freight trains that pass through my rural area.  It kind of looks like painted metal that's been out in the weather a while.  The graphic says "utilitarian" to me.  The signature(?) in the lower right is reminiscent of grafiti.

And I don't in any way mean to convey that all of this isn't anything but cool. 

How large is it?  I think it would have a strong impact as a large piece and maybe it would be at home hanging on a brick wall in a an urban loft.  Or in a rural converted barn with rough wood walls and beams.

And thus winds up my career as an art reviewer! Grin

thank you for taking the time
to share your thoughts with me  Smiley

yes, it is a solid size. 2 foot squared; 24 x 24.

i chose red as the main focus because
i wanted it to tie in with my work area.
( i have a red stool and mini red metal cabinet ).

...with every intention for it to be modern and minimal;
but the effect is almost its opposite.
it has an obvious vintage appearance,
"kind of looks like painted metal that's been out in the weather a while".    Smiley

being born and raised in an inner city environment
has its influence on me,
in regards to the signature.
you are right on with the graffiti.  

very interesting interpretation.
thank you again Smiley

I'm happy to see you are painting. I like this. It makes me think of a waistband... death by waistbands. The first thing that I thought though was that it needs more paint. Be free. I had a teacher who would say, " Paint can be sexy". One thing that about the minimalist movement to keep in mind is how it was known for being more of what you see is what you get. Kind of like the dada movement. So it doesn't neccesarily need to have a message of anything you can just call it an experiment. If you are trying to make it more minimal you can use medium to do washes of color over. you used acrylic? <3

yup.  i used acrylics.

this is the result of layers + layers of paint,
the negative space was achieved by stripping away the paint
by several techniques with which I was experimenting.


thanks for your insight !   Smiley
