Basically, Abstract Art is a journey into color, texture, and inner perceptions. It looks into the not so obvious subject matter of everyday life. Good Abstract Art attempts to remove the veil of surface realism and to expose what lies beneath. Abstract Art is not a practice where good fundamentals are abandoned but rather a practice in which good fundamentals are transformed into a new methodology. Mixed Media in visual art, is simply a reference to utilizing more than one medium in a piece of art; such as using oil paint and acrylic paint together. The range of mediums to use is great and diverse and is not limited to just types of paint.
The majority of works in Empire 1 Studio's Mixed Media Abstract Art section are significant for acrylic, oil, aerosol, and enamel paint compositions on canvas. Here the methodology is open, unlocked, and inclusive for materials, styles, and expression. A minority of the compositions represented involve photography and digital graphics or traditional ink drawing styles replete with graphics editing to form unique hybrid forms. In the case of the Red Cross print, the hybrid form is a composite of two different traditional abstract mixed media canvas paintings that has had their images digitally integrated. These images are from the "TalkingPipe" series. We offer this contemporary style for original commissioned fine art. These images contain watermarks.
