Size: 12″ x 4″ x ~2″ (per panel)
Monochromatic in Thirds was made using painter’s caulk, ink, and beads on canvas.
Monochromatic In Thirds was the first multi-part work I had done. I purchased these canvases, which came as a set of 3, long before I actually used them. After completing Royal Elven Armor, Post Arrow, I wanted to do another piece using the same basic color scheme (or lack thereof I suppose).
I began by applying painter’s caulk to the panels. I had placed them directly against one other so they design would overlap. I then brushed black and French gray inks into the caulk. Using different brushes, I added some varying texture elements to the caulk. Then I inlaid beads. I carefully separated the panels & removed any excess caulk from the sides. I painted the sides of the canvas black. The entire piece was then sealed to protect it.
Each piece has a hanging device. I can easily change it so that the pieces can hang horizontally. I often display this piece in a stepped pattern rather than lined up neatly.
That’s it really. Not all my pieces have a story. This was simply doodling in three dimensions – kind of theme all my work has to be honest.
