So. Many. Dots. Yep, lots and lots and lots of tiny little dots of acrylic paint. Acrylic paint!¬†All of these pieces are part of a show, titled Splash, that opens later this week in New York… if you can go, GO. This is the art meets technology work of Miami based artist William Betts. I don’t fully understand his¬†process, but I do understand that I’d love to jump in a pool/go to the beach this very minute. Beautiful.

    Is always good to find artists with disruptive aproachs to tradicional mediums like acrylic painting on canvas. Great job!

    How cool would these paintings look when the dots would actually be stamped like in aboriginal paintings?

    Looks a bit like cross-stitch! If you look closely you can see lots of crosses and squares and the dots at the ends and edges. Fun idea for someone who likes that medium.

    I admire this artist’s patiently, precisely placed dots! Great subjects for this style!
