Purple Prison

CreatedNovember 2022

Began applying soft acrylics with my hand, enjoying the movement and blending of purple, pink and watered down white latex paint that was leftover from another creation. I enjoyed how it looked but it wasn’t visceral enough. The following day I tried to recreate the same color palette and could not. The paint had become too thick so I brushed it out with a silicone baster but it wasn’t right. Finally shaved stripes of wet paint off, uncovering dried paint from previous day. Although the lines are crooked, I found amusement in it. It reminded me of bent prison bars that someone might tried to squeezed out of in much older movies.
