Meet again our beloved Derek Overfield. Previously here, Derek is a contemporary figurative artist, whose work is influenced by the classically monumental, the archaic and modern, the divine and brutal. Derek’s recent work involves a sgraffito technique of scraping away a wet layer of latex paint, creating line from the base beneath. He then applies washes of paint that are lifted away to create form.
Derek will be exhibiting some of his larger works on canvas at the Fine Arts Center Gallery of Glenville State College this April. The exhibit, “Venerations”, will be a two person show featuring Derek’s work and the work of Lauren Adams. The show will run through April 28th. Stop by and let us know.
