Another show, another artwork. The show is the ever popular Rittenhouse Fine Arts Show in Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia, just  a 20 minute walk from the ArtHouse/Raven’s Wing Studio. The artwork is a mixed media piece by artist Keith Grace from Rockford, IL. That’s Keith in the middle and Shari, his wife and also an artist, to his left.

Artistic Process (From the artist’s materials):

“Each painting begins with sketches, often inspired by photographs that I have taken of friends and objects. These sketches evolve into the final composition which is enlarged and drawn onto canvas.

“I then collage individual pieces of typography and other visual elements — such as maps and elements of pop culture — securely onto the surface with many layers of an adhesive, transparent medium to ensure a flat, seamless application. The typographic images are chosen randomly by type font, size, boldness and color.

“Next, I block in color with layers of acrylics. Detail painting is then applied with oil colors, using a drybrush technique. This process is performed by using unmixed paint directly from the tube and rubbing it into the surface with a flat, hard brush.

“For my new work I have been incorporating dimension by collaging tactile objects like thumbtacks, glass, shells and more.”
