Works on paper
Over, Under, Sideways, Down
This recent production (2018-2019) is exploratory in nature, with emphasis on using new forms and different methods. They are executed on Mylar.
Mylar, as a semi-transparent film-paper, facilitates this investigation by allowing the use of both sides of the paper. It creates a shallow field of depth while suffusing the surface with a soft light. I have also combined different formal approaches to abstraction; geometric hard-edge forms of saturated colour stand or rest alongside, over and under, liquid veils of neutral-toned washes – thus setting up dynamic contrasts. These works are complete unto themselves – they preview future works in oil and encaustic.
