CARAN D’ACHE / CRE­ATIVE ART MA­TE­RI­ALS, LTD. AWARD FOR EX­CEP­TIONAL MERIT Artist State­ment I am fas­ci­nated by the pat­terns, col­ors and rich­ness of rusted, aged me­tal. My col­lec­tion of vin­tage oil­cans has be­come a fa­vorite sub­ject. Dra­matic light­ing and cast shad­ows play an im­por­tant role in this com­po­si­tion, echo­ing and soft­en­ing the shapes in a framed back­ground. Com­ple­men­tary col­ors or­ange (brown) and blue are used in the fore­ground with sub­tle com­ple­ments of vi­o­let and yel­low tones. The bal­anced, or­dered com­po­si­tion and struc­tured shad­ow­ing is con­trasted by the ran­dom­ness of the pat­terned rusted sur­faces and weath­ered wood. Greasers is a trib­ute to the beau­ti­fully de­signed tools of the work­ing man.
