Gallery Installer
C.J Phu

www.CJPhu.com

 

Using acrylic paint, graphite, charcoal, and oil stick, C.J. Phu, local Artist as well as Art Installer, creates lush semi-abstract, expressionistic botanicals, which express his inspiring, lifelong love of nature. He chooses to avoid the use of brushes, creating an almost glass-like texture with the paint. In his words, “I discovered that for me it was much more enjoyable to scratch and sculpt the surfaces of the paintings.” In his work, multiple layers both hide and reveal various features, like a game of hide and seek.
