New Leipzig School Inspiration

Back in early 2007 I went to an exhibition at the Frye gallery in Seattle of work from the New Leipzig School (Life After Death: New Leipzig Paintings from the Rubell Family Collection).  The stark and architectural nature of the work has always stayed with me and I decided to interpret this in a painting recently.

I'm not sure I love the results, but it was great to pick up a paintbrush again.

It's acrylic with some embroidered faceted things up in the corner, because what's blog art these days without facets?!

Some process pics.

I do like the color base though.

My favorite artist from the exhibit is David Schnell, the dreamy perspectival quality just draws you in.

In short, I've got a long way to go before I do any paintings that I'm super proud of, but one always has to start somewhere.
