When an artist chooses to create a textural effect in his/her work, it just seems to invite “touching”. Some artists are fine with that and even encourage it….others….not so much! So it’s always a good idea to ask gallery personnel if it’s permitted.
Roy, Markoe and Marion's works are great examples of how layered art media, adhered objects from various other sources such as marble dust to actual rock slabs are used to enhance a painting and varies enormously from artist to artist. In some paintings the amount of paint, implements used and the way it’s applied creates interesting texture as well.
The results are quite interesting because a deeper sense of depth, a sense of motion and in Marion’s work, a special diffused sense of the light is created. Stop in and see for yourself!
