**Update: Thank you for all of the lovely comments!! I'm going to try to thank each of you as best as I can over the coming days. // The winner of the giveaway is @balconesjoe. Congratulations! Be on the lookout - Ello will be reaching out to gather information in order to get this piece to you. ✨
I'm happy to announce that in collaboration with @elloartgiveaways and @iamthelab, I'll be giving away this original piece!
Ink + acrylic + metallic pen + latex on raw gallery canvas. 20x20x1.5. This piece is part of a series of works on raw canvas, exploring movement, emphasis and contrast.
My work is characterized by bold, gestural brush strokes and minimalist detail. As a nod to my analytical roots in photography and architecture, I approach each piece with a mathematical mindset - counting evens and odds, balancing lights and darks, visually "slicing" the composition into thirds and fifths. I approach my work as if it's a problem to solve: combining and contrasting elements with and against one another to create a cohesive yet dynamic piece. My work is an exploration of contrast, tension and resolve. Methodical by nature, I challenge my own ideas of control by experimenting with materials, allowing them to behave as they naturally would, with subtle direction.
This giveaway begins today (9/9/17) and ends Tuesday (9/12/17). Simply comment below to enter. Stay tuned for the announced winner!
