PROGRESSIONS are pieces of art which I continually work on and show the progress of until someone stops the process by purchasing it. In essence the art keeps evolving until a patron steps in becoming part of the creative process.
Beauty is 18″x22″ made with charcoal, graphite, acrylic/house/oil paint, transparencies, tape, newsprint, adhesive, on board.
This piece is now at $500.00. Beauty’s next progression is Saturday, Sept. 14th. If you would like to own this piece of art then you must let me know before the date above because it will not be the same after that day.
These pieces of art have a six day viewing window then they are worked over again. The change may be as subtle as adding refinement and rendering, other times the transformation may be radical, so much so that the piece underneath is obliterated. The variations are almost infinite as I continue to build and destroy the surface with paint, collage, etc. but it is possible the art may be destroyed altogether. Only you can save it from that fate.
All pieces of art will start at $100.00 and raise in price $100.00 after every progression. Email me directly, greg(at)spalenka.com if you want to purchase (free shipping in the US, unless the art is over 13″x19″).
Beauty started out as a figure drawing and is now evolving into another piece of art. I adhered the drawing to Crescent board, drew on it some more, placed transparencies over the drawing, collaged them down with tape then used acrylic, house paints, oil paints. The evolution continues with breaking down the surface with sand paper, painting over the destroyed areas, adding more collage, on and on it goes.
