Acrylic on canvas
25” x 27”
“At present, my paintings gravitate toward a series of work involving the resilience of humanity verses nature and their eternal conflict to co-exist harmoniously. I have created a visually energetic surface, using a contrasting field to complement explosive foreground images. A feeling of both tension and depth is achieved by using intriguing spatial relationships.
“Without compromising the integrity of the ‘Glass Release Stain Painting’ technique, I have developed a process in which I apply multiple stages of acrylic paint to glass. Once dried, I transfer the paint to a stretched canvas in a narrative format. By utilizing this unique procedure, I feel it has provided greater control of my visual expressions, thereby enabling me the opportunity to integrate personal iconography within my composition.” – John Malveto, Walker, LA
