moreAcrylic over Metal Leaf on Paper. Painting transforms and shimmers in changing light due to hand-applied metal leaf under layer.
Roger Mudre’s work is all about the circle. This local, Wilton, CT artist finds inspiration in the colors and patterns of nature. Painting in jewel toned acrylics, he builds sheer layer upon layer of color on a subtly reflective metal leaf surface creating a picture plane that changes with the viewer’s perspective.
“I have never known any other path to take except that of an artist.” – Roger Mudre
Roger's work is collected in many corporate and residential collections including, Hotel Zero Degrees in Norwalk, CT, Frontier Communications, and the Energizer Corporation in Shelton, CT. Roger finds influence in artists' work such as: Josef Albers, Sol LeWitt and Mark Rothko.
“The concept of infinity has been the inspiration for the work. Employing the circle, the perfect form as a muse. Created images reference microscopic worlds, cellular growth, auras, the cosmos, and places unseen, only imagined. The square format allows for a field of pattern that continues equally in all directions, reinforcing that feeling of infinity.
Paintings begin with a ground to which metallic leaf is then applied. Using both additive and subtractive techniques multiple layers of glazed color are built up. The underlying leaf not only adds a rich tone to the work, it allows the light to refract off the surface of the finished painting. A variety of tools are used including brushes, scrapers and rags giving the paintings a very nuanced texture and complex depth of color. The combination of reflective metal leaf and the many layers of glazed color allow the painting to appear subtly different, depending on the light and viewing angle, creating a constantly changing visual experience. The result is a record of a journey that is both a sensuous and a creative exploration.” – Roger Mudre
