Ever throw a party, then wake up the next morning to a completely disheveled house, yet revel in the knowledge that you know a good time was had? The work of California artist Kim Squaglia, with its effusive confetti-like dots and streamer-like lines against soft, solid backgrounds reminds me of the quiet morning after a rockin’ party.
As you can see in Lolly ( detail ) above, Squaglia’s technique of layering acrylics, oil and resin results in incredible depth, almost cut-paper like in nature, adding to the confetti and streamer effect I can’t seem to get out of my head.
Then there are works like Scend ( above ) and Cirque I ( below ), which are a bit more reminiscent of cosmic configurations and tangled vines. There is also an interesting cell-like structure to many of her compositions, which may seem like a microscopic peek inside the human body or other organism.
So many possibilities to be discovered! What do you see in Kim Squaglia’s work? To view more of the artist’s work, please visit her website.
