Group Description

Discover and explore creative new techniques in experimental, nonrepresentational media painting and mixed media art. Experimental media painting is predominantly abstract, subjective art created through exciting experimentation with acrylics, watercolors, gouache, collage materials, encaustic waxes, oil or solvent based medias and natural materials as well as nontraditional materials and painting tools. Experimental art is contemporary, fascinating and great fun, yet decidedly different from traditional painting.

Members explore creative techniques, such as layering to create complex buildup of transparent and transluscent depth and surface luminosity, lifting and scraping to reveal texture and underlayers, glazing, controlled pouring and blotting,imprinting, rubbings, and use of shapes.

We discuss ways to experiment with new and traditional materials, such as transparent and opaque acrylics, inks, watercolor, gesso, aquarelle crayons, gels and various mediums, modeling paste, rubbing alcohol, bleach, Saran and bubble wraps, paper towels, crayons, natural dyes and unique papers and supports.

The painting above was created by encaustic painter and printmaker Charissa Thomas and I'm delighted to have it as part of my personal collection.
