This painting involves the culmination of everything I have learned in the past eight years of painting. It is a mixed media piece that includes oil paint, watercolor, acrylic, and resin (both mixed and unmixed with pure pigment). The composition of the piece was designed to bring out the strong points of each of the mediums. Careful use of the resin is the secret that allows you to mix the water and oil colors together along with the acrylic in a stable way that maintains its archival qualities. Along the left and right sides of the painting are extremely textured areas that were created by carving out wax molds and then filling them with pure unpigmented resin. Most of this I left completely clear so that the colors that lie on the layers below would rise through the cracked undulating surface, in other areas I frosted the finish so that it would catch the light and attract the eye to that area. The model for this piece is the same man that served for ‘Latino Man,’ but with some artistic license allowed to help him conform to the evil Iago from Shakespeare’s Othello.
