I have just created three metal paintings 19 1/2 in high by 18 in wide.
These are creations a little different from my metal lace sculptures, which I like to do from time to time.
To realize them, I start from a sheet of steel that I cut out according to the subject I want to create, I push the steel back in places, I let it come out in front in other places to create volumes.
For the graphic side, I grind the sheet metal to give it different shapes where the light will play with the subject and the grindstones.
Then I apply inks of different colors, like a painter on a canvas.
Each sheet is fixed on a wooden board.
Everything is varnished to keep this aspect.
Each painting is signed in front, on the sheet metal and behind on the wood.
So I present you my three paintings, on three different subjects (click on the pictures for more details) :
