Description Acrylic and gold spray paint on canvas. Green fades into yellow and then orange as the color spreads across the canvas. Blue water runs down the opposite side cooling the motif. Gold spray paint designs accent.
Marlo Hartung, Seattle Member Since August 2007 Artist Statement Hi There, My name is Marlo Hartung. I grew up in Seattle and have lived here my whole life and I am so happy to be showing locally! Thank you for viewing my artwork. I am a Program Assistant by trade and an Artist by hobby, time permitting. I began creating art when I was very young. One of my earliest childhood memories is first grade Marlo sitting in an empty classroom obsessively working on a very intricate Christmas scene for a classroom book project. It turns out that my first grade teacher had to call my mother to inform her that I wasn’t getting any fresh air and exercise because I was skipping recess to draw…I’ve lightened up since then. The work you see now is a direct result of my day job. After spending 40 hours a week managing details, all I want to do is swath a canvas in bold and bright abstraction. My medium of choice is acrylic paint for its vibrancy and because I like that it requires me to paint quickly and not overthink what I am doing. I hope you enjoy my work and thank you again for viewing! Contact info: Marlo.firstname.lastname@example.org
