Rebecca Duffin (Slick Oils)

Virtual Exhibition of Flow Art (Paint Pouring) by Rebecca Duffin

Rebecca Duffin is a Devon based abstract artist known as Slick Oils and is showcasing her alcohol ink artwork in this virtual exhibition. Her pieces are rich and vibrant, with a particular focus on the colour blue.

The emotional connotations of blue are vast and powerful, just like the artwork itself. Each piece exudes expressionism, through the colour and flow of the ink.

Alcohol ink is a fluid painting technique which is relatively new and first originated in America. It differs from other mediums such as acrylics and oils as the ink dries very quickly, meaning speed is key to creating beautiful free flowing pieces. The ink however can be ‘revived’ and manipulated again, which is often to the detriment of an artists perfectionism.
