The playful story connects fundamental art vocabulary with the art making process, thereby preparing the student for conversation about art.

Take Flight

  • Take Flight by Trina Wilko showcases the abstract visual of flight. This piece will look stunning in any room of your home or office. My process begins withgestural brush strokes applied randomly from a spontaneously selected color palette.The materials areapplied with animpulsive emotional and energetic focus thatis both exciting and agitating at the same time; it is arapid andactive dialogue between ?myself and the work. Thisaction, however,isnot conveyed thoughtlessly. Although it begins with a measure of abandon, theexpressionevolves to the point where formalistdecisions become my main concern. Althoughthis painterly process is liberating, itinevitably constructs compositional problems thatI struggle to solve using formalist criteria; it is ultimately a spiritual workout. ~ Trina Wilko Available for purchase: A Reproduction of a 20" x 13" Mixed Media Painting Purchasing a Contemporary Art Gallery Online reproduction is an easy way to revitalize a dull room, create an area of discussion, show your personality, and more.
