I have a wonderful collector in Kentucky who had acquired two of my paintings so I was thrilled when he bought a third! This work is called “Energy Rising” and is a very unique piece. As you can tell from viewing my work I paint what I want. I am do NOT restrict myself by going the traditional (boring and expected) route of producing the same work over and over ad nauseum.
No, I paint with inspiration – NOT – repetition and the result is a rich variety of works sometimes clearly related as in a series but often a singular work that is like nothing else I have done. I find that these are some of my most special works…probably due to the fact that they, like myself, are individual and unique.
This brings me back to this work, Energy Rising. It is a singular work and justly so because it contains enough creative “energy” to make 20 paintings in a series yet ALL on one canvas. The painting is deceptively simple because it is comprised of hundreds of palette knife strokes that intertwine. mingle and mix together to form an image with infinite depth. The color pallette is also one that was chosen for the effect of representing thoughts and mental energy. Thank you for collecting my work! Abstract Artist – Nestor Toro – Los Angeles
The work is 36 x 48 inches. Acrylic on canvas.
Vibrant and very detailed piece with bold color blending, lots of drips and big palette knife strokes…Pretty much everything I love in a painting!!! This painting conveys motion and energy as well as lots of light and fast changes in contrast. Has a very active summer feel and yet one can get lost in it!!! triple primed canvas and heavy layered with high quality Golden and Sennelier acrylics, ink and Liquitex spray paint, UV gloss protective spray. Contemplative statement piece.
All my artwork is on gallery quality heavy duty stretched and triple primed cotton canvas and ready to hang. I include a certificate of authenticity that lists the materials as well as when the painting was completed. Fine high quality materials such as Golden and Sennelier products are used and UV protective enamel for sunlight protection.
