Future – Rustic

 

Another experiment in the idea of modern ”rustic art” and what “country art” could be without the same old cliches.  Exploring the organic design qualities of what makes rusting machinery as well as natural things like fossils, cactus, bones, weathered wood and the like, so visually appealing (to me) and how they can apply to new forms.  Hill country organic rustic surrealism something something™ ?  I like it.

ART OF TEXAS STUDIO & GALLERY ~ 812 Brentwood St. Austin, Tx 

I have enjoyed working over the last year with my friend and fellow artist, Jamie Rood. Jamie was one of my favorite Austin artists and photographers for years and had always remembered me when I would drop by and see what new works he was revealing at local shows.  Over several years, Jamie was kind enough to invite me to assist in the workings of his Art of Texas Studio & Gallery- to get to see the raw location shoots, digital art layering, lighting and manipulation that go into the creation of his art. That being just the beginning as starts the meticulous, hands-on production and print processes involved in the canvas and matte prints made from these works.  I have pulled a few of my favorite Rood prints here in all of their rustic, subtle psychedelic beauty. It’s been a blessing to work with Jamie, and an honor to have work on display in his gallery for one of Austin’s largest and best organized community art events.

I started this painting in high school as a watercolor experiment at about 20” x 30”. At the time I was unable to achieve the look I wanted and went on to other projects. A few years ago I visited my family in Dallas and took digital hi-res photos of the painting right off the wall and was able to continue the experiment- did several versions of additional touch up and layering with the digital tablet, printed those and hand painted acrylic and ink layers onto the prints, rephotographed and combined into this version. Catcher 2012 version. Looking forward to more.
