Brian VanVoorst is an artist who is currently exploring vibrant and intense color in abstract work. In this series he doesn’t use a traditional brush; instead VanVoorst applies custom watercolors to synthetic paper by spraying colors in layers. VanVoorst prepares the paper beforehand through a variety of methods, each being an experiment in affecting the flow and drying of the paint. Once the paint is applied he minimizes his direct interaction, preferring to allow patterns to emerge organically. His final step is to highlight and refine the most dramatic portions of the painting. The result is otherworldly and invites imaginative interpretation.
