NEW Low Relief Panels " Modular Stripe Paintings" Series
"In these new series of minimalist paintings, my primary compositional unit is the stripe. By altering the depth of lines, width and color of the stripe, I am able to create arrangements that pulsate with a serene or active kind of rhythm. Each stripe requires several decisions regarding variations of etched/carved lines in the surface medium and whether the bands of color are solid or textured. These new low relief paintings on panels, with their textured and sculptural surfaces have a tactile surface that is rich and intimate. The colors in many of my paintings were inspired by the flora and light of Maui."
Diane La Fontaine
The method for each painting is first created, with a vinyl paste applied over a 3/4" depth wood panel. The surface is then hand craved and sanded. Acrylic paints and mixed mediums are used for desired effects. The painting is then sealed with several layers of satin Polyacrylic protective finish.
The original paintings available here on the website are shown accurately in size over a 4 foot modern white credenza.
