- In many of my paintings I combine still life realism and abstract techniques in the same painting. Marrying these methods allows me to explore my two favorite genres together and create works that offer a greater level of depth the collector.
But in this image, I have taken the concept a step further by combining realism and abstract art in the same motifs of the painting. Let me explain:
The blue painter’s tape, masking tape, and sticky note are all painted in the ultra-realistic trompe l’oeil style, where these elements look so real you might think there was actually tape on the surface of the canvas. Now, take a step back and look at the composition as a whole. The structure of the image takes a nod from abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko (1903-1970), where instead of bits of tape and paper, the stroke of blue and tan and the blocks of yellow and brown are one color space, linked together with the white line of the string.
