🎮LET ME TELL YOU A LITTLE MORE ABOUT THE “JUMBO” AWESOME BUT ALSO “JUMBO OVERTURN”:⬇️🔨🛠🔧
⛔ What I really noticed lately, is the interest of people in the paint marks, splashes, and compositions that stay on the studio floor as a natural outcome of my painting process. They really go crazy about it! After some time and the more I paint, the floor is getting more and
more interesting. At least for them. For me, that was never something I considered to be part of my creative process. Until last December….when I realized a random game of colors that happened on the floor and gave me a brand-new solution for my paintings!!
From that point on, I started thinking about how can I combine this pure coincident approach with my practice and techniques so far. And this is how I am going to do it:
- I will start by making two paintings in size 2, 10 m in length, and 5 m in height and will name them “Jumbo Awesome”. That is 21 square meters of painted canvas in total.
- The same amount of plain white canvas I will install on the studio floor directly without the frame. Creating a fake floor, so to say.
- And then I will just start creating and paintings Jumbo Awesome, leaving the random marks of paint on the canvas underneath.
- When Jumbo Awesome is ready, the canvas underneath will be stretched on frames and the two new paintings will appear. I will call them “Jumbo Overturn”!!!
⛔ COLOR-WISE, JUMBO AWESOME WILL BE A VERY LIGHT SERIES. VERY BIG BUT ALSO VERY LIGHT 🗃 IT WILL CONTAIN ALL THE DIFFERENT METALLIC COLORS I DISCOVERED AT THE END OF 2021 AND WITH SOME PLEXTOL EMULSION, WHICH WILL AD SOME SUPER STRUCTURE AS WELL 🍸 BUT I WANT THE PAINTINGS TO BREATHE MORE THAN USUAL, AND I WILL TRY NOT TO CONTROL SPLASHES SO MUCH 🏺 IT SHOULD ALL LOOK LIKE A GIANT WATERCOLOR SKETCH 🎶 I AM GETTING BUTTERFLIES IN MY TUMMY JUST THINKING ABOUT IT!!!!!!! 🎂
⛔ THE WHOLE PROCESS WILL BE DOCUMENTED ON MY INSTAGRAM PROFILE 🍾 IF YOU ARE NOT FOLLOWING ME THERE, I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE WAITING FOR!?❓ I AM WORKING MY ASS OFF FOR TAKING THOSE GREAT PHOTOS WHILE LIFTING GIANT PAINTINGS IN THE AIR! 🍰 HAVE MERCY💲
⛔ TAKE YOUR BODY AND MIND TOGETHER AND WORK ON YOUR SKILLS! 💯 I TALK TO YOU IN A MONTH ABOUT A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT TOPIC 🔆 IT IS NOT GOING TO BE ABOUT ART AND I AM SURE MANY OF YOU WILL RECOGNIZE THEMSELVES IN THAT ⏺
XOXOXO, ANA 🎸🎸🎸
