These End of Palette Rainbows engage in an economy of materials by utilizing the remnants of an acrylic painting process expressed iteratively through the repetition of form.


I have specific palettes of colors that I return to repeatedly in my painting practice and I use the small amounts of leftover paint that would otherwise dry out and be discarded to make the End of Palette Rainbows, which are worked on over a period of time in separate painting sessions.


The rainbow is a highly recognizable, symbolically charged symbol or trope that also lends itself to variability and interchangeability parsing every color in the visible spectrum into an arching array- an exercise in scalability, rearrangeability and compositional variations.
