DISPARATE FOUNDATIONS VIII
Oil and Wax, 24 x 30 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.
“Some painters flutter all about their subjects, others are straight drivers to the essence of things. A house has many windows, but a ray of light catches on one. It becomes the window which declares all windows.” – Robert Henri (1865-1929)
