Mind on His Money, Money on His Mind or Eric B. & Rakim's 'Paid In Full' (Remix), 2019
Acrylic, enamel, resin on canvas
19 x 22 in.
This is from my Drop Dot series.
I squeeze drops of acrylic onto a canvas at my feet below, to simulate the gathering of pixels that forms an image which our eye naturally performs to see.
In this painting series, I give space between such pixels for us to consider the relationships of micro/macro objects in space.
Here, I wanted to celebrate the elation from closeness shared between a romantic couple. How many pixels does it take to recognize familiarity or joy?
And from the title, Money was a societal stressor that prevented me from being present and recognizing joy.
