New Painting – “Loopy Llama”

by Leon Sarantos in New Paintings
Loopy Llama
(H 22 X W 28 inches, $390)
Loopy Llama is one of my new abstract paintings from my Networks series.  I start by applying swatches of color to the canvas in a random but slightly controlled composition.  Then, using a single color, I start outlining these swatches. Eventually, a figure or scene starts to emerge as the lines are laid in, just as a social network starts to take on a life of its own to create its final phenomena.  Like reading a Rorschach inkblot, my subconscious offers up a definite recognizable shape or scene from the materializing network.  In this way my painting, Loopy Llama, emerged.
Displayed In Solo Exhibit
This artwork was displayed at my solo exhibit, Networks, at CornerStone Art Gallery, Indiana, 2013. The exhibit included eight of my new abstract artworks, including several small artworks that are coming soon to my website.

Many of these artworks are now available through my new gallery affiliation with Artfinder, which is a curated online gallery based in London.  I’m very pleased that my art has been accepted there, and have made my first international sale courtesy of this gallery.  Now my collectors extend from Chicago to Moscow!
