Combining flashe, acrylic, and aluminum leaf on wood, New York-based artist Jim Napierala paints organic overlapping lines, whose intersecting shapes contain colors and light. Chaos and clarity coexist, as a gesture of a hand or an expression of a face show through the swirling movement that wraps around them. Napierala’s inclusion of aluminum leaf emphasizes this movement, as the paintings colors perpetually change depending on the reflected light.

You can purchase Napierala’s work at Saatchi Art.
