Created by Ken Girardini and Julie Girardini
Bringing together metal surfaces with imagery and acrylic painting, the artist creates pieces that glow with reflected light and have a texture that appears to float above the aluminum substrate. He incorporate his own images printed on transparent layers and adhered to or transferred directly onto the work. He then modifies them by painting both under and over. The piece is sanded, scraped, and drawn on to enhance the physical surface. Finally, a painted steel sculptural element is overlayed.
