Blasted to Atoms

"Blasted to Atoms" was finished in 1982, when I invented it from memory. At this period of time, I was so excited about being an artist and had recently started painting outside (plein air) like my artist heroes that I had looked to, from the previous century, but this painting was done in the studio.

I found that I really loved seeing Impressionism and Post Impressionism, but wanted to also invent something really modern and original myself. I thought that some of the ideas from the previous century were just as relevant. This was some of the factors that contributed to how I came up with the idea to paint again with "Dots" in late 1981.

This is one of my "Dot" paintings from 1982 and is an acrylic on canvas "Dot Series" painting was painted in 1981-82. I feel this painting became a major influence on Ross Bleckner, (my teacher at NYU) when it was displayed in class, along with many of the other "Dot" paintings and the slides of dot paintings that were also shown to him in 1983. He was at that time painting with stripes and he he made his cell paintings later on in the mid 1980's. In this painting you can see the atomic structure, intricate detail and wild color blast and highly charged action. I painted the "Blasted to Atoms" painting from 1981-1982 and finished it just before applying to NYU for my Masters Degree in Studio Art. I had already come up with the idea of painting with the "Dots". "Blasted to Atoms" is an original "DOT" painting by JET III. It is an oil painting on canvas and is 36" x 36" in size, it is currently unframed, but has a painted edge.

Our big kids all got fabulous water colour paint sets for Christmas which makes so much more doable. With that same idea in mind I recently picked up a set of ‘dot paint markers’.
