This new series of images, Human Detritus, is satisfying in their painterly and visceral abstraction. The hooded forms in #2 and # 3 are enigmatic; suggestive of both a tree and human figure. The thinner tendril like shapes in the background of the muted, almost achromatic piece (#2) serve as secondary figures- eyes watching the central subject. I also enjoy the impasto surface of the work. The textural black sections offer dark passages of interest, and slighter quieter space than the active brushstrokes with color and value contrast. While death of organic matter is implied in both the painting’s palette and title, there is also a beauty in the stillness and dark heap of the structures. The pinker version with a similar configuration (#3) is arguably more uplifting. I wonder if these new works were inspired by Rasmenia Massoud’s collection of short stories by the same title. They appear to tap into similar caustic observations of the human spirit, but break the archetypes down into even more primaleval and intuitive shapes.
