Curator’s Comments:

 

Welcome to the site!  These bold figures embody charismatic energy with high chroma primary hues and expressive gesture.  I find the multipart patterns within Execute! particularly exciting because they both enhance and visually contradict the gesticulation of the overall figurative support.  The gear and piston like shapes in the legs suggest a forward momentum, but the graphic details also slow down the viewers’ visual movement throughout the piece.  I also find it curiously effective that the arm folds back on the torso of the body, pointing backwards just as the face and limbs propel forward.  What looks to be an orange parcel under the arm puts the figure in a business like realm, adding an edgy contemporary twist.  Dancers by contrast express joyous and universal human exchange. Their curvilinear contours are also reminiscent to me of Niki de Saint Phalle in their sheer exuberance of voluptuous form.
