Layers upon layers upon layers of paint are applied—pentimento in style. Merriam-Webster defines Pentimento as a reappearance in a painting of an original drawn or painted element that was eventually painted over by the artist.
An abstract “portrait” reminiscent of a foggy memory. Punchy pastels in pink, yellow, and green dominate the canvas. Vertical sheets of acrylic are applied and removed by a squeegee to veil the anonymous subject as just a blur. About 1/8th at the bottom teases the viewer with round patches and strokes of the previous layers. Instances of bright primary colors suggest a childlike cadence yet allude to the idea that there’s more to the story.
