A few nights ago I had a handful of people over at my studio for a night of art making. My friend and sculptor Joe Brubaker brought a bunch of small wood pieces with him, and everyone had the option of glueing them to their paintings.
Adding this dimensional element to my work was at first very difficult! I found that no matter what I did, the little wood piece dominated the overall composition and threw everything off balance. Then a simple, but effective, solution hit me.
Watch the video, and let me know what you think. Do you add any sculptural quality to your paintings, or vice versa? I would love to hear.
In gratitude, Nick
