Moon Walker-Moon Sees me: My first copper sheet painting, 30"x 48."
These pieces were the beginnings of my using copper sheets to build paintings. In my trips to Japan and S.Korea starting in 1995 they were easy to ship as I could roll them in small enough coil to carry in flights - then roll out as a scroll for presentation. In Asian history scrolls are very acceptable, carrying a lot of written information for fine Painting/drawings.
With this second sheet, I embossed the metal before painting to give a pattern so it had more depth and perception of metal illusion as excitement and artistic style.
I like the dance motif in all these works because it breaks from static form and has a created suggestion of movement.
