The Earth, The Body

Sandy Coomer is a visual artist and poet living in Brentwood, TN. Below, she shares her thoughts on acrylic pour painting and how it can encourage alternative ways of perceiving her artwork.

These paintings are part of a large collection of over 100 paintings that explore the earth, the body, the environment and the science that binds it all together. These pieces are acrylic pour paintings created by combining acrylic paint with various substrates and silicone oil. The layers of paint react within the mixture according to their density, and form an abstract design. I interpret the design in terms of land, water, sky, body, natural elements and phenomena. My aim in creating this collection is to present unusual and alternative views of creation in order to inspire viewers to “widen their world.”
