St.Claire Art, Asheville

#12 of 26 in Museums in Asheville
St.Claire Art is the working studio of Stephen and Joy St.Claire in the River Arts District of Asheville, NC. You can view more of his work on the website, www.StClaireArt.com

Medium: Stephen has developed a new medium and termed it Dialuminism ("light passing through"). To begin, he sketches the composition with modeling compound and gesso, then he covers the entire canvas (texture and all) with metal leaf. Next, he applies several ultra-thin layers of oil paint, adds his special wizard's concoction of solvents and finishes with several layers of clear resin. The result is a painting that is multi-dimensional, reflective, and essentially back-lit.
