The Girls – Spring 2011

Posted in Paintings with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 2, 2011 by josean

I just recently had my easter break (10 glorious days) which gave me the time and motivation to do some painting after a bit of a hiatus (work and some freelance stuff was taking up all my time). I’ve been working with oil markers a lot lately, and have been incorporating it more into my paintings. Although a bit tricky at first, I was able to utilize them to create a painterly effect with more control. This control allowed me to do what I’ve wanted with acrylic, to a point I am using very little of it. These paintings are mainly spray paint, oil marker, and masking fluid, built on layers in a more consistent manner than my previous paintings. At 25, this is my largest series yet, and it seems it may continue for bit more.

The Girls

Posted in Paintings with tags , , , , , , , on May 2, 2010 by josean

2009-present. Acrylic on canvas. What started out as just an experiment turned into a full series. I played around with continuity, the backgrounds flowing from one painting to another.  At times, I was working on several paintings at once.  Each canvas at one point was used as a palette for the previous painting(s).  I played around before and during using abstraction, patterns, and designs. Using some makeshift printmaking methods, the right figure was then inserted into the background, and layers of colors were added, creating a unity in the painting. This series has been a successful and fun one, actually leading to several commissioned portraits in this manner. I am currently taking limited requests for portraits in this style, contact me for more information.

Portraiture

Posted in Photography with tags , , , , , , on February 18, 2010 by josean

Portrait series 2004-05.  Shot with a 4×5 camera using only natural or available light.  I used black and white negatives which where then printed with a color enlarger to create  false sepia tones.
