Tina Brunetti, Alcohol Ink on Metal
Artist Statement: Intense love and respect for animals and nature compels Tina Brunetti"s vibrant colorful creations depicted through the application of mixed media on textured surfaces. Her goal is to communicate to the world the importance of ecological balance between humans and Mother Earth through her artwork. Tina creates vivid colorful translucent alcohol ink paintings through the application of alcohol ink to all sizes of upcycled pieces of aluminum, steel, and copper metal sheets. Prior to applying the alcohol ink, texture is added to some of the metal sheets with grinding tools, or a torch is applied to the copper to produce vibrant intricate colors or an "aged" blue green patina is created by chemically treating the copper with salt and ammonia. These unique processes create stunning colors and patterns that results in multi-patterned light refractions that has her patrons mesmerized and wondering how she creates these unique effects. The transparency of the alcohol ink lets the patterns on the treated metal shine through. The layering of pigments and use of dremel tools to add fine details produces a 3-dimensional effect that make her landscape, animal, and Native American paintings come to life.
Tina also paints with acrylic medium, creating texture with application of sand and glue or weaving canvas strips into the canvas.

"Color is a physical phenomenon of light – wavelength, luminance, hue, saturation. But color is made meaningful only through individual perception. How a person perceives color in a painting is directly associated with the emotions provoked by the painting. . ."
