This painting is part of a series about the late 1960's. It portrays the pop culture of the era of the Vietnam War protests. The palette consists of primary colors, created with inks and dyes on a variety of papers over canvas. The surface is sprayed with an archival UV protectant and art resin is applied over the surface to protect the work and enhance the colors.
This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the edges. It comes ready to hang.

J. Concetta received her MA in Design from the University of Minnesota where she studied color theory under great artists. One professor, Marian-Ortolf Bagley, often said that a painting must work in all directions to be truly unified. So J. would test works by hanging them upside down, and in each direction. J. sold some paintings in Minneapolis after graduation, but went on to manage the ink and paint department of an animation studio. The intense hues of the inking technique, along with Paul Klee’s use of transparent color, strongly influence her current body of work.
