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.
“When the motives of artists are profound, when they are at their work as a result of deep consideration, when they believe in the importance of what they are doing, their work creates a stir in the world.” – Robert Henri (1865-1929)
