Time Travel

Combined media on unstretched canvas.  panel 52"H x 80"W

The off-white color of the raw canvas caught my attention as necessary to this piece.  I preserved that base by covering the canvas with an archival  protective medium prior to painting.  

The theme of time travel became apparent after I completed this piece.  The exercise for me was to create something dynamic on this large scale using the limited palette of black, white, gold and iridescent pearl grey.  My emphasis was about doing my own version of the heavy black strokes on a stark ground, like Franz Kline.  I admire those types of pieces for their boldness and graphic quality, but my hand is definitely a renderer of more organic looking elements.  I'm happy that the result is bold, fresh and full of motion. 

Free Priority shipping in the continental US.  In person delivery possible within the greater NY Metro area. This panel is properly packaged in a tube for shipping.  This is a great way to buy big art and save a great deal on shipping charges!  Being unstretched, the painting can be shipped at a fraction of the cost of an over-sized stretched canvas (meaning, one that has the wood framework behind the surface).   It avoids all the extra cost from weight, bulk and special handling of those huge crates that galleries and museums use.  Fedex, UPS and USPS handle paintings in mailing tubes every day.  Plus, the work is insured. There is plenty of margin around the painted area to accommodate (not included) stretcher bars.  As one of their standard services, any reputable pro frame shops or art suppliers with framing departments are experienced with putting works on unstretched canvas onto framing supports.  Decorators and interior designers also have these resources in their contact lists. By creating the piece in this way,  I'm providing you with opportunity and power to complete the picture by choosing the presentation that will be perfect for your needs.  Satisfaction guaranteed or full refund if returned within 14 days.

Time in Motion

Combined media on unstretched canvas.  Panel size:  45"x 88"  Shown in horizontal aspect.  

A modern painting in the neutral theme emphasizing black and white contrast.  Patches of dense black paint become ethereal wispy marks on a void-like background of raw canvas.  Smooth, linear strokes take turns into territories of unexpected loops, doodles and playful squiggles.  Spurts of highly textured paint create a push-pull with dapper silver metallic medium.  Isn't this all just what happens as we experience time?  Between the smooth, the wanted and expected parts and the rough, undesired detours, we want to surround ourselves with things that return us to when we and time were in a harmonious motion of spontaneous laughter, surprises,  inspiration, treasure hunts and victorious discoveries.

   A hallmark of strong contemporary abstract art pieces is that they create emotional impact in no matter which format they are hung.  So, I cheer you on to take part in the creative process of my work by displaying it in the way that speaks to you best!

Time in Motion

Take your time and gaze at how great the painting "Time in Motion" looks displayed in vertical aspect too.  This contemporary abstract monotone painting was created in shades of black, white and touches of metallic silver.  A modern statement art piece that is dramatic, elegant and sure to be a winning choice as sophisticated decor for that wall in the the long hallway.   Undoubtedly, with its strongly contrasting hues and textured brushwork, this piece would also create a beautiful artistic focal point in a space with high ceilings.

Combined media painted on unstretched canvas panel measureing,  88H x 45W.   Made with professional grade artists materials.  (Of course!)

 Free Priority shipping in the continental US.  In person delivery possible within the greater NY Metro area. This contemporary painting ships rolled in a tube.   This way, you don't have to deal with storing, unpacking and disposing of an enormous, bulky crate.  The packing tube can even fit across the inside length of a small vehicle.  You now have the convenience of lightweight, safe, easy transport of large, valuable art work when traveling to.   t's a great time saver too, when you want to stage an art piece in different sites and lighting situations to judge which environment suits it and YOU.  There is plenty of margin around the painted area to accommodate (not included) stretcher bars of several thicknesses.  (I don't know why it's called "stretcher".  It's just a term. The canvas doesn't get stretched like taffy. LOL!)  You can consult with an experienced professional art framer on which presentation option is best for your needs.

Satisfaction guaranteed or full refund if returned within 14 days in original condition.  Please contact me with any questions:  info@lesleykoenigfineart.com or direct message me on Instagram:  lesley_koenig_fine_art   Your email and personal info will not be shared with other parties.
