DISPARATE FOUNDATIONS IV
Oil and Wax, 18 x 24 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.
“It is not too much to say that art is the noting of the existence of order throughout the world, and so, order stirs imagination and inspires one to reproduce this beautiful relationship existing in the universe, as best one can.” – Robert Henri (1865-1929)
