Identified Black Male
Identified Black Male, poured acrylic on 24×36 canvas. I started playing around with poured acrylics for the fun of it. It is a messy process but who doesn’t love messy? Besides, it is very satisfying to give up control to the paint. Creating the color combinations and determining how you will affect the pour is about all the control the artist has unless the pour is coupled with structured painting which is the case for this work. I drew the image onto the canvas, taped it off with painter’s tape and poured paint over the entire canvas. I needed about 24 hours dry time before the paint was dry enough to pull away the tape.
