Symbolic symbols

This series reinterprets symbols from everyday life, and adds a spiritual depth to familiar shapes.

Each painting begins with a spray-painted coat of gradient sky. The symbol is created from an original stencil, and the overlaying splash comprises a combination of metallic paint and gold leaf. In some cases, the sides of the canvases are painted neon, radiating a warm glow that adds another dimension as the painting hangs upon the wall.

Acrylic paint, gold leaf, and metallic paint on wood board. 12" X 12" X 1.5"
