ART ON PLEXIGLASS
BY PAUL YGARTUA
A REVOLUTIONARY TECHNIQUE
DEVELOPED AND CREATED BY PAUL YGARTUA
Future Conceptualism is a reverse painted technique on transparent plexiglass, a technique similar to Cloisonne Enamelling, an ancient method of the Chinese (whose history can date back to over 500 years) whereby a single line is etched out depicting the subject matter, then each area painted separately, creating a collage of color in a mosaic effect.
This is a complex technique, conveying a powerful presence. A mixed media mosaic cubistic style inlaid with gold or silver, creating the design and separating the colours. It is a distortion of the subject matter, an original abstract with a sculptural effect. The element of lucidity is created through color separation combining florescent metallics, enamels and acrylics.
"This medium I developed in 1986 and this style continued to evolve till the early 90's. It is just recently that I have re-entered the challenge of working with this extraordinary medium which allows to experiment more with my design concepts creating an ultra modern effect. A medium where I can express my sens of design with the freedom of expression with a controlled freestyle."
