Small Compass 8" x 10" oil on wood

Small Compass 8″ x 10″ oil on wood by Casey Chalem Anderson

As you can see, colors in my abstract works are closely aligned with my representational paintings. But there is an important distinction. In the abstractions, I don’t envision how the finished painting will look. It’s all about trial and error.

Here, the proportions are in a consistent state of re-evaluation as layer over pigmented layer is scumbled on to the surface. Lines of graphite are drawn and then painted over. I obscure with paint; rubbing, removing and adding texture which ultimately leaves a trail of how the work is created.

I stop when I feel tension held in suspension and chunks of colored space breathe fluently.

Here is a link to some more of my abstract paintings:
