SUN SALUTATIONS FEATURING MARK HENNICK

“My paintings are finished when both addition and subtraction of paint from the artwork form a harmonious blend of texture and color.”

ARTIST STATEMENT

Beginning with acrylic color, I build my surfaces using traditional and nontraditional tools such as rubber blades and pallet knives. Layering paint and selectively removing areas of it from the canvas creates both depth and dynamic color relationships. These abstractions are meant to evoke both organized systems and chaotic circumstances of nature. Over many years, I have learned to let process and materials lead me in painting. A new artwork begins and ends with each addition and removal of medium from the canvas or panel. Many iterations later reveals the final image. It’s a fun and exciting experience. As both viewer and maker, I embrace the surprising result.
