Harry Sidebotham

Harry Sidebotham’s paintings emulate natural systems of organization; math and science play a large role in his research and inspiration for creating new works. Although he mostly focuses on painting, Harry also makes sculpture, time-based, and performative work, and uses a wide range of materials. Fun fact: Harry's breakfast of choice is biscuits and gravy.

Comments About This Piece

This work is from my "Parallels" series and is inspired by my interest in parallel dimension theory. The system featured in this painting is an attempt to reveal invisible dimensions that exist parallel to ours, and the two halves of this diptych serve as reflections of those possible other dimensions.

In an effort to conserve materials, the 1/8" lines on the bottom painting are made of the tape peeled from the top painting. This piece is a diptych and the dimensions listed are for the piece when hung as shown. The two panels are not attached and can be configured in a variety of ways. The dimensions for a single panel are 18.5"x19.5"x1.5". These pieces are hand painted on cradled wood panels and come ready to hang.

Acrylic painting

Acrylic paint was made commercially available in the 1950’s. Acrylic is a fast drying paint that can be diluted with water, but becomes water-resistant when dry. Acrylics can be applied in thin layers and washes to resemble watercolor paints, or they can be applied in thick layers, built up for texture. The main difference between oil and acrylic paint is the drying time. Oil dries slowly, allowing more time to blend colors and apply glazes. Artists who use acrylic paints typically work faster than those who use oils. Additionally, acrylics offer more versatility and are often used for mixed media work. Artists can mix different materials into the paint, such as sand or rice. They can also apply other media on top of the dried acrylic, such as pastel or pen.

One-of-a-kind

A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
