Portfolio > Acrylic

Several years ago, I got the idea of painting on plexiglass. After years of creating many monotypes, by applying oil-based etching inks to plexiglass with brayers, then manipulating the ink and utilizing the subtractive method, prior to transferring to etching paper, I got the idea to apply slow drying acrylic paints to plexiglass and play with the paint in the same manner as I have with my monotypes.

I have designed and created tools from small pieces of plexiglass to remove the slow drying acrylic paint, and then after the paint dries, fill in the vacant areas with regular acrylic paints. These pieces are displayed from under the plexiglass surface. Sometimes I have another acrylic painting underneath, displaying through the vacant areas. I also create pieces where the painting is done on top of the plexiglass.
