by Shawn Christopher “Textures” is a collection of 3-d paintings on wood. The use of color and texture enlivens the imagination to an array of possibilities. While the deeper tones may get lost in the background under normal circumstances, Shawn pushes these colors to the forefront, so that they are the first to be noticed. This project challenges the boundaries of painting versus sculpture, for the two schools of thought have merged within the same tangent. These pieces were each painted individually, then arranged by color, shape, and depth. Not to be boxed in by a square frame, the color, shape, and shadow of these pieces give the illusion that they are floating in midair and jumping off the wall.
