GC Ss 6 Babel - Yuri Figueroa - Oil and Gold Leaf on Canvas - Abstract Painting

About

"GC Ss 6 Babel" by Mexican born artist Yuri Figueroa is a densely layered mixed media painting. The foundation of the painting is a collage of found newspaper that is covered in layers of black, white, and blue oil paint that the artist squeegees over the canvas. The mixture of the paint through this technique creates a color palette similar to the text itself, and this similarity provides some balance in the chaotic composition. The warm tones of the paper are mirrored in the perfectly crisp circle in the center. The masked gold-leaf orb is both calming and sinister as it never allows the eye to stray far from the center.
