The paintings shown here are reverse acrylic paintings on plexiglass. This technique is a derivative of a centuries-old process of painting on the reverse side of glass ,which preserved the paint and intensified the vibrancy of the colour seen through the glass. In these works, I feel connected to a historical way of working and yet I am using modern materials such as plexiglass which is lighter to handle and less breakable, and acrylic paint instead of oil paint. So I apply the acrylic paint directly to the back of a large piece of plexiglass and once I am done, I flip the piece over and show the front side of the image, which has a completely smooth surface and the paint's luminosity is enhanced as the colour is seen through the layer of plexiglass. The plexiglass is then adhered to a canvas or wood panel support for the finished piece.
