Painting: Acrylic on Wood.
The inspiration for this painting is the song "Wake Up" by the Arcade Fire. I really resonated with this song, and wanted to make a grid of suns. When I tried to stylize the suns I didn't like it, and so ended up with a perfect circle in a rectangle of many different shades of red. The painting is on birch plywood, which absorbed the paint and so you can see the grain of the wood through the paint. The suns are a metallic gold acrylic paint, giving the piece a modern and rich finish.
