between heaven and earth" is inspired by the Renaissance wooden
altarpiece, in particular by some recurring elements of this
historical genre, in a contemporary key: the angels, the miracle of
the sacredness of motherhood, the client, the apparitions of human
wood, in all its material essence, its veins and warm color, is the
context and background of the composition that engages with the human
body in its expressive and existential charge.
picture is made on a poplar plywood board 80x110 cm in size and 0.8
cm thick, reinforced on the perimeter with a small wooden frame which
gives an overall thickness of 2.8 cm.
wooden support was previously stained with acrylic paint and a very
diluted matt final varnish, to reduce the color absorption but
preserve the warm color of the wood grain as a background.
painting is made with acrylic colors.
The painting was treated with shellac flakes dissolved in alcohol and final varnish
that enhance the color and grain of the wood while avoiding the
glossy effect. The table is signed and equipped with an attachment
because it is deliberately without a frame.
