Artwork Description

"Fiesta Forever" Abstract metal art by artist Paula Gibbs, Palm Springs, CA. Layered enamel on metal mounted on wood panel, 36" x 45" x 1.5".

After cutting the metal into strips, I distressed it, by adding folds and bumps. These are the spots where the several layers of enamel paint come through. I paint many layers of enamel paint in various colors.

This different spots of color are where I used resists, which are areas where I have preserved a earlier paint layer. Once all the paint layers are applied, I remove the resists and hand sand each piece to get just the right amount of colored layers to come through.

The cradled wood panel is 1.5" deep. The sides are painted black and a substantial wire hanging device is installed so it is ready to hang.
