JUDITH VILLA ABSTRACT FLUID ARTS July 2018
I have been painting all my life. The last 4 years I have been focusing on Abstract Art. But it was not until I discovered the techniques of Fluid Arts, that my passion for painting came alive and I began devoting my time to painting.
To be able to create art without a
paintbrush, mixing chemicals into the
paint to cause the paint to flow and
interact in new ways — this excited
me profoundly. I love how dynamic and magical the process of Fluid Arts are. Abstract Fluid painting techniques achieve cellular like separations with the use of acrylic paints and other chemical agents.
The most popular form of Fluid Arts is Pour Painting, where paint is poured onto the canvas, rather than using a brush. Other methods include tilting, dripping, swirling, dipping, puddleing, cell formation, and swiping. Chemical additives increase the flow of the paint, and affect the cellular interactions. The intricate patterns, combined with vibrant and bold colors, convey movement.
I am looking forward to sharing my paintings and the diversity of Fluid Arts with you.
I work with Acrylic paints. To get the paint to flow and create cells, I add chemicals. These include Pouring Mediums, Silicone, and isopropyl alcohol. These chemicals cause the acrylic paint to act more like Oil Paint. I also enjoy adding glitter and other mixed mediums to my paints.
I enjoy hiking in my spare time and many of my pieces are directly influenced by these hikes in nature. I love recreating plants and wildlife in my work.
