Bird Bath

Following a free-handed pattern comprised of red ink, the artist used various metallic markers, wood varnish markers, sharpies, rollerball and white-out pens to create a more organic, abstract form with a rich texture. 11 inches x 14 inches, completed in 2015.

Curator’s Comments:

 

Welcome to the site! I appreciate the narrative that accompanies these abstract motifs.  While the geometric abstractions have an enjoyable Haring-esque quality, I’m especially attracted to Bird Bath, for its organic undulations.   The rather small scale of the physical piece no doubt adds to the density of the space.  While I don’t see the metallic qualities of the gold coloration, I imagine the different media offer more variation in opacity and semi-transparency.  The blue and red colors moving throughout the composition offer visual stability as a counterpoint to the more erratic directionality of the shapes, but I see the work as fully non-objective.  Similarly, the work entitled It’s an Elephant shares a haptic, gestural sensibility.  While there is a hierarchy of form in this painting, the contrasts in the value pattern keep the visual movement active and subject matter rather ambiguous.
