Description

Tall painting is a technique closely associated with Holton Rover, who is a famous New York artist credited with the development of a technique known as pour painting. In this technique he creates beautiful works of art by pouring different colors of acrylic paint onto layers of ply wood and applying them in a continuous motion. Even though he mostly uses wood as his main canvas, there has been a show where a woman’s body was used as the canvas for what became a rather captivating and intriguing art work. In watching his work, the designs seem highly premeditated and at the same time spontaneous. The skill in this technique is demonstrated though the fractures, clumps, U-turns, smears, waterfalls, zigzags and fissures that are created to bring a beautiful and breathtaking piece of artwork.
