Show Title: Paint Palette Series
Artwork can be created in many ways using different varieties and amounts of medium. This often involves creating waste, which on principle I always try to avoid. Apropos to the adage, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” I noticed while I was painting one day that my paint palette was just as interesting as the image I was creating on the canvas. I didn’t want to throw it away. So, I started collecting all of my palettes on cellophane in June 2016 for a future project. And now I’ve finally finished. After applying my saved acrylic paint palette, what you see is the bottom of the palette, not the top. I found this detail even more beautiful because you can really see the mixed paint and the heavy texture. To view my process in a video, go to Instagram @victoriaklotz.
