About This Piece

Trine Bumiller’s Wood Water Rock is made of eighteen separate wood panels painted in oils. The work is located at the new ColoradoConvention Center, and is installed on the curved wall outside the amphitheater on the ground floor of the

Speer Boulevard

side. The location has high visibility. It is at the end of a long hallway connecting the

14th Street

lobby and meeting rooms with the amphitheater. A balcony overlooks the space from the second floor. It is also the lobby space for the amphitheater and a natural gathering place with a bar directly across. The paintings are also visible from outside of the ColoradoConvention Center.

 

Trine uses the old technique of oil glazing – applying as many as forty- five layers of oil films per painting. Trine also utilizes traditional materials for preparing her paintings, including, rabbit skin glue, pure spirits of gum turpentine and Damar varnish. The result is a rich, glowing, luminescent effect.

 

The paintings, Wood Water Rock, combine various abstract images based on themes from Colorado’s landscape. Different panels show mountain ridges, pools of water, snow, trees, grasses and rivers. Colors such as sandstone, ocher, slate blue, cerulean blue, and pine green emphasize the rich earth tones prevalent in Colorado.

 

Trine states that: “The effect will be a montage of Colorado concepts, in details and perspectives that express the whole. They will be iconic and universal and evocative of the state of Colorado.”
