Linda PicosClark, ‘Entropy 1’, 2015, ViVO Contemporary

This is the first painting in the Entropy series. This painting naturally evolved from artist Linda PicosClark’s Rojos series during her first cold winter in Santa Fe. After working exclusively in reds (Rojos) for several years she continued to experiment in the same color family of reds but started adding at least two additional colors. PicosClark applied the paint to create strong structures only to have the paint and solvents break it back down. The transparent layers reveal the various building and destruction of my process. This painting is in oils and golden metallic leaf with traditional glazes. The glazing creates a very rich and deep surface with minimal texture. Though the medium is traditional the process is not, utilizing nontraditional tools tools to drag, puddle and allow and force paint to drip across the canvas. The edges are painted in a complimentary mute green. The entire canvas including the edges are varnished. The painting is wired and ready to hang.
