Future Conceptualism is a revolutionary technique developed by Paul Ygartua. It is a technique of reverse painting on transparent plexiglass, similar to Cloisonne Enamelling. This was an ancient method of the Chinese (whose history can date back to over 500 years) whereby a single line is etched out depicting the subject matter. Then each area painted separately, creating a collage of color in a mosaic effect.
This is a complex technique, conveying a powerful presence. A mixed media mosaic cubistic style inlaid with gold or silver, creating the design and separating the colours. It is a distortion of the subject matter, an original abstract with a sculptural effect. The element of lucidity is created through color separation combining fluorescent metallics, enamels and acrylics.
This medium I developed in 1986 and continued developing this style till the early 90’s. It is just recently that I have re-entered the challenge of working with this extraordinary medium which allows me to experiment more with my design concepts creating an ultra modern effect.
All Future Conceptualism paintings,reverse painted on plexiglass are museum quality framed (silverleaf from Spain,Italy,etc) Please note on occasion there is a reflection in the photo from the plexiglass and all borders are even. All native paintings here are on exhibit at Eagle Spirit Gallery and abstract,modern work at Ukama Gallery.
