DRIP PAINTINGS by Carolina Tapia-Urzua "Drip painting is a form of abstract art in which PAINT is dripped or poured on to the canvas". I’ve been interested in this particular form of expression since I learned about the work of mid-twentieth century artist Jackson Pollock. Pollock largely originated drip painting and used this form of painting almost exclusively. He would make use of such unconventional tools as sticks, hardened brushes and even basting syringes. His style has fascinated me since I was 20 years old. I particularly like liquid acrylics, which I will drip directly from the tube onto plexiglass which I use as my ‘canvas.' The plexiglass allows me to paint both sides of the surface, creating a 3D effect that adds more depth to the art piece. My inspiration comes from colors, shapes, nature, thoughts, dreams, emotions and especially movement around me inspired by the ocean and by city life. As a native of Chile I’ve been making my home in California half of my life now. The Pacific Ocean is my main connection between these two dearly loved places.
