"Brilliant Awareness" is an original acrylic & ink abstract artwork (2012). This gessobord tile measures 24x18 inches (28x22 inches framed).
Acrylic paints and inks are added to the surface of a gessobord tile to create an abstract image. Mixing acrylic paints and inks together is like mixing oil and water; a fluid, dynamic interaction takes place at the boundary between the two until either the interaction is manually stopped or the liquids totally dry. Once the tiles dry, a polymer coating is applied over the surface which protects the image and provides a glossy finish.
