The fab 4 posing in front of my painting ‘Falling Up’ which incorporates them all. A big thanks to (clockwise) Donnato, Gio, Abby and Gabriela, also an amazing artist! (Check out @gabrielahandal )It’s been great working with you on this piece.
The painting was based on a tiny drawing by Delacroix, of Rubens Fall of the dammed. I love how the figures entrained so I hired the models separately and cut out the drawings and arranged them into a cluster.
One of my sketches of the four figures accidentally landed on the floor, I decided I like it upside down so that’s why it’s called ‘Falling up’ however, I think there is still some ambiguity about which way they are going .

Detail from Falling up, a painting based on a small sketch I saw by Gericault, which in turn was based on a Rubens painting, “Fall of the Damned.” I loved how the figures entwined, so I sketched it. Back in the studio I hired four models separately to recreate the poses, playing around with different configurations. Serendipity played a part in the process too — when a drawing landed on the floor upside down, the figures were suddenly falling up, which had the more positive meaning of overcoming adversity. Despite this, there is still some ambiguity about which way they are going. Now on show at Dacia Gallery, NYC until May 30th. Call Lee for Inquiries ‭(917) 445-5243‬

Removing tape after varnishing. #oilonpanelpainting. I use Solivar varnish which is super shiny, so I added some Solivar Matt Varnish to it: it’s still ice rink shiny tho . I experimented on another surface adding turpentine to Solivar (1part Solivar , 1 part distilled turpentine) result - patchy at best. Ideally I would like a satin finish which is removable in the future. Gamsol is another possible option but not sure Solivar and Gamsol are comparable. The combination of the two does produce ideal varnish effect though, ie satin finish. Any ideas?
