DISPARATE FOUNDATIONS V
Oil and Wax, 20 x 20 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.
“The most beautiful art is the art which is freest from the demands of convention, which has a law to itself, which as technique is a creation of a special need.” – Robert Henri (1865-1929)
