Between Heaven and Earth
Painted Wall Sculpture
Created by Ken Girardini and Julie Girardini
The Chinese I Ching symbols for Heaven and Earth frame the brilliant reds, golds, and earth tones in the forms between. Original photographic layers, gold leaf, and acrylics on aluminum panel with steel structure and lexan. Bringing together the artist's love of metal surfaces with imagery and painting. Girardini can create works that not only glow with reflected light, but also have a texture that appears to float above the aluminum surface. He incorporates images, printed digitally on transparent layers, and adhered or transferred directly onto the work, that enhance both metal and paint in unexpected ways. Limited edition of 25. Each piece is unique and will vary slightly.
