DISPARATE FOUNDATIONS III
Oil and Wax, 24 x 36 inches
The “Disparate Foundations” series of paintings explores the inclusion of incongruous forms/shapes serving as compositional elements. Though these elements are contextually related, their rendered form and shape (geometric, unnatural, foreign) and their visually unrelated incorporation introduces a degree of abstraction and visual tension (between natural and unnatural elements) to these paintings.
“Look around at the immense creation of nature and you will find laws, unlike in their aspects and yet alike in their effect, which generate all human emotions.” – Paul Gauguin (1848-1903)
