Oil and Wax, 20 x 20 inches
The “Surface” series of paintings explores the visual properties of the transition between water and the atmosphere. The common elements of these paintings are a tilted horizon (conveying instability), a sense of depth (observing below the surface) and wave action (water breaking beyond its surface).
“There are forms that can only be seen when you are near a canvas, others only appear when you are far away. To paint is to know how to put nothing on a canvas, and have it look like something when you stand back.” – Robert Henri (1865-1929)
