Layer of Acrylic Painting with Engraving Techniques
Canvas with Wooden Frame
The tweleveth painting of FUJIMOTO's series of "Layers of Color" which started in 2015. The process of this series begins without any clear theme, message, or plan. The each step of painting is decided after each layer of painting is done, and the finished look of this work will be decided whenever FUJIMOTO feels like its done. This is freeing from the structure of figurative motifs with pure visual phenomena. He has been using high sauration of colors so in this work, he used brown as a main color for a change.
From the seventh painting, FUJIMOTO switched from panel to canvas due to the reason of long-term storage, to focus only on the front, and reduce the weight of work.
There is over 20 layers of acrylic paintning on this work. After layering colors, he pours water on top and use sand paper to grind the layer of colors. The number of layering and grinding process depends on if FUJIMOTO is satisfied with the finished look or not. The quality of color is kept because it is created on a temporary board and put it on a wooden frame when cleaning and drying after completion is done.
One of the characteristics of the this painting is the "multilayered magic" which is a scene that can only created by paints.
FUJIMOTO found a way to express his desires in 1999, and since then he have pursued the possibility of painting with the consistent technique of “griding and layering of acrylic paint”.
