Sunny's Description: This painting is 7 ft sq. I put the dimensions here because I am a dumb american and I don't know the conversion to metric. I like to work big because I think it is interesting to take something small and neglected and make it bigger than life and engulf you. This piece is a realistic rendering of a piece of juniper, the cropping,scale and intensification of color is what pulls it into the realm of abstraction. The mystery of not knowing exactly what you're looking at is definitely part of the premise of my work. To me this painting is a cross between a landscape, like a cave and a baroque gown with silk and ruffles and beads and froof. I like to reference old paintings through glazing techniques and color and use these techniques for a very contemporay effect using arcane subject matter, little objects from nature.

These artworks are impressively executed and scaled. On, you speak eloquently and clearly about each series. It would be interesting for the observer here to read a word or two on your experience, and motivations for these bold works. What influences your approach to painting, and perhaps other artists that interest you. Personally, I like the idea of that something seemingly recognizable but you can't quite put a name to it - that occurs in your paintings.

You might like to take a look at the work of Jazz Green (some of which is here on art process), though her approach naturally differs from yours, I think you may have a common interest in process.

Hi Sunny,
One inch = 2.54 centimeters.
7" = 213.36 centimeters, so your painting is 213 x 213 centimeters. Hope that helps........
