ARTWORK THEORY REPORT


Remnants of a grade-two braille and rolls of hand-made paper were preserved and sanded prior to being archived onto the painting ground. The balance of the texture, comprising of variant organic materials and mylar sheets were incorporated into the composition using contact cement. The stretcher, on which the 20-ounce woven canvas rests, was custom made with treated wood to avoid warping over time. The glow emanating from disparate parts of the painting was achieved by applying several layers of linseed oil loosened paint 72 hours upon completion of the work. The artist signature is rendered in gold at the bottom left corner of the canvas.
