Abstract: Artist's statement: "The painting When Worlds Collide is an exercise of space, color, form, and process. When Worlds Collide is acrylic and mixed media painting, made of wood, Spackling paste, canvas, and foam. The painting measures two and a half feet by two and a half feet and was finished on March 31, 2016. The painting is an adaptation of my drawing; it is trying to bring it to life with minimal aesthetics or less visual information. This is a response to my previous painting, Untitled (Political Painting), which was described as being too spatially developed. I believe that because the form was going to be developed in real space, I needed less visual information to support the composition. The object does that itself. Paint and gradation was added to reinforce that information, and I do not want color choice to become the main point of the piece. I want the painting to be about emotion, energy, imagination, and reality as much as I want it to be about form and space. Still, the painting is too cohesive in color and material. The next painting needs to find a balance between cohesion and disruption through color." This is a digital photograph of Dylan Boutwell's painting. It was submitted as an assignment in the spring 2016 Intermediate/Advanced Painting class taught by Professor Erin Harmon.
