MOONDUST: 55” X 27” X 4” ACRYLIC ON CANVAS
Dimension and depth of canvas was achieved by hand-stretching. Batchley played a lot with house-hold appliances to create visual texture and eliminate any trace of brush strokes. Everything from cotton balls, tooth picks, SOS scrubber pads and a tooth brush were used.
Eye of Providence: 60” X 48” X 3" acrylic on canvas.
A mixture of titanium white and an opalescent additive were used to create a shimmery effect in the highlights. When the room is totally dark it seems as if the subject is glowing.
