Acrylic collage on board

Subtle shifts of color are created by peeling, tearing and gluing acrylic sheets of dried paint on board. Several seems that jut in from the outer edges of the work were created by abruptly ending flows of color and texture. Drips of paint were poured on a resistant surface and then peeled and adhered to the textured surface. I was striving for a contrast of meticulously applied units of paint with a more spontaneous flow of paint. The overall effect is somewhat whimsical- thus... "Magicland"
