Clio’s Art Collection – Stephen Balut
My paintings are about beauty, complexity, mystery and scalelessness. They most often beckon the ethereal and atmospheric qualities of infinity. Celestial vibrations of color created with paint and thread. First, I paint the canvas, then I wrap the canvas with as many as 50 layers of thread, string, yarn, wire and/or monofilament. Each layer has a unique color and sheen that reflects light differently depending on its depth and contrast or resonance with the paint behind. Viewed perpendicular to the piece the paint typically dominates the reflected light and combines with the thread to create a deep and rich composition. Thread shadows on the canvas and recessive layers of thread – contribute to the depth and complexity. Viewed at an angle the paint is subdued, the reflection of light from the threads dominate and the uppermost layers create a lenticular fuzzy glow. The pieces resonate with simplicity and a faint reckoning of our place in the firmament. A complex and enigmatic beautiful moment, somewhere.

This art responds to the concept of Pikes Peak Gold Rush. The organic quality of the background and striking gold paint almost appears as gold dust floating at the bottom of the river.
