'Burst #1' by Carl Linstrum, 11 x 11 x 1.75" oil and wax on panel. Carl begins with references to actual nature shadows on walls, the sidewalk or road. His surfaces are created by applying a layer of wax with a brush, then reworked with a palette knife and heat gun to create the feel of a plaster wall. The collaboration of tools and materials allows for an intentionally distressed surface, with rounded corners to convey a sense of being worn down through time.
