Painting- Mixed Media _"Track One" by Chelsea BrockCool blues with hints of coppery pinks. 30" x 18" Mixed Media on canvas2014$725.00Materials used are homemade papers, pastels and acrylic paints. Fire was also used to build textures.Colors are blues with hints of pinks.Track One come from the album this painting was inspired by.. the actual album is Feelings by David Byrne and the song is Fuzzy Freaky.Anyways, it was a fun painting to work on overall... There are many layers of paint in various blues because I repainting the the subject about 4 times before I was happy with the foreshortening and colors. Because of this, it offers wonderful added textures. The papers were also layered with each repaint which offers more complexity to the overall finish of this painting. The painting has been sealed so the any pastel would be forever preserved.Ask me more about this piece if you are interested.
Chelsea Brock-Hoberer is a Dallas-based artist specializing in mixed media and photography. Passionate about all things art, Chelsea pursued a BFA in Graphic Design and has gone on to produce a wide variety of work within her professional portfolio. Her greatest career achievement was the co-founding of the scenic design company, C. Scenic, which has gone on to work on various projects for television, stage, film, and more. Her hands dipped in many pots, Chelsea enjoys using nature as part of her mixed media arrangements. From the little trophies brought to her by her beloved Bubastis to the discoveries she makes on her own, she has collected a wide array of pieces that she breathes new life into until she sees their time as done. At the end of their revival, she then immortalizes them in a final 2D piece. When she’s not working in the studio or in the shop, she is tending to the garden. Her yard is another pride and joy, and it is filled with the very same splendor and care Chelsea puts into her art. From the lively koi pond to the grand trees, it is evident she is happiest when surrounded by nature. Dedicated to recreating the tiniest fragments of beauty that often go unnoticed by the casual eye, her most recent series of works highlight a world that is beautiful even when its lifespan has seemingly come to an end. In her words, "Even in death, there is still beauty to be had from the things we leave behind." "Naturally Infused" is the embodiment of that philosophy, and it will continue to stand as a testament to Chelsea's passion long after even she is gone.
