Playing with Surfaces: Yupo

abstract yupo

I painted on Yupo paper for the first time when I was in middle school and I thought it was such a cool surface to work with. I didn’t use it again until recently when I was in┬áChicago. I was shopping around for a variety of surfaces to experiment on and I was immediately drawn to the Yupo paper. You can get some really cool effects on this non-absorbent surface. I plan on doing a lot more work with it.

New Work: Breathe

22″ x 28″

The three paintings I’m going to share this weekend were all created for a show submission. The show will take place at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine (where some of my work is right now). Their last show was an open call for art of all subjects and themes. This time, the show is called the Art of Science and the theme is the relationship between, well, art and science. I was so excited when I heard about the show because, as some of you may know, I love painting cells and things inside the body.

For this exhibition, both artists and scientists were asked to submit work. Scientists could submit photographs for artists to transform into some kind of artwork. I chose three photos to paint.

This first painting was based on a photo taken by Yale Rosen. It shows part of a normal lung. This painting is probably my favorite out of the three because of the interesting shapes.

Thanks for reading! Tomorrow I’ll share the next painting.
