Mel Rea
'Speaking in the Soft', Large Rectangular Mixed Media on Canvas Painting

2016

About

"Speaking in the Soft' is a mixed media on canvas painting created by American artist Mel Rea in 2016. Signed in the back, this large unframed rectangular format features a subtle palette made of light blues and soft yellows enhancing a motif that could perhaps remind us of a wave crashing against a cliff. To create this piece, Mel used ink, acrylic, alkyd and powdered graphite on the canvas. The energy and movement of the painting is reinforced by the use of alkyd oils that set a comfortable pace for her work. It dries slower than acrylic paint, but more quickly than traditional oils. With alkyd paints, she is physically moving fast and furiously, but the dry time is slow enough for her to contemplatively work back into a piece during a painting session. It has provided a great deal of physical and psychological freedom, and a direction she is inspired to pursue. Placed anywhere in a home, this abstract painting will bring an introspective touch to any wall.
