New Collection: "Stripes"

"Stripes"     18" x 24" x 4"
Gouache and High Voltage Electricity
on corrugated fiberboard
After "Sunset" I decided to move away from reference material all together and allow myself a little more liberty in creative expression. This piece was the most difficult one so far.

For this work I decided to go back to the idea of the layers being separate from one another, and how the interplay of unlike parts could create an interesting whole. This effect was intensified by the highlighted repeating pattern of orange and red which, unlike the green and blue, is on one plane yet contrasts enough to pull the viewer in.

Ultimately what became the most important part of this piece was the organic patterns which arose from high water content. The blending between the red and white is highlighted by thin, white, black, and red lines.
