Moments with Kairos

Mainly Interference Acrylics

In 2014, I enjoyed using interference acrylics on their own or combined with other acrylics. What I love about interference colors is that they change according to how the light falls on them. From some angles, the paintings that use mainly interference colors can look beige, light brown, light grey. If you shift them just slightly, they show a multitude of iridescent and metallic colors. Any reproduction, of course, does not capture the multiple views that are possible when you look at the original. I felt that this medium was an appropriate expression for these visions of an unreal, imagined reality that plays with perspective, repetition and variation of shape, identity, myths, ancient history.
