In this lush and textural painting, the image (an overpainted auction ad) is brought to the surface through calculated action as different varnishes become thicker and more complex, trapping metallic pigments like gold, silver, and copper and the evidence of the process of oxidization.
The use of different varnishes and UV coatings, together with oil paint, absorb, reflect, and diffuse light and enhance the surface's capacity, creating a depth of pictorial space. This working process is about continuous re-assembly, re-organization, and re-construction of the overpainted image, zigzagging between creation, ruin, and epiphany.
