This is a collection of original oil and acrylic paintings by Faith Lund.
In my collection of paintings, I work with a layering process which I developed using transparent flowing pigment. I sometimes apply up to 30 layers which gives the paintings a glowing effect. I build up the images this way ending with application of brush work accenting colors and subject. As a result, the surface is flat and painted with a stained effect and at the same time certain areas are impasto and built up on the surface giving a physical quality of dimension. This technique is the same as used on my non-objective works. With my subject oriented works, I incorporate oil paint with the final touches which adds to high contrast. Images seem to jump off the surface.
The subjects shown are from my travels. They include individual specific settings and give the viewer an invitation to step into another world. All of my work has an atmospheric, glowing feeling which changes with the light in which they are displayed. They appear as if they are alive. This realization goes deep into the surface of each painting.
