Collage: Acrylic, Paper on Wood.
"Jump", 2017, mixed media, 24 inches wide by 28 inches tall (60 x 70 cm).
Colored translucent tissue and painted paper are cut and layered with transparent acrylic over a broadly-brushed background of yellows and blues to create a dancing, energetic surface, suggesting sunshine, sky and springtime.
Although the color philosophy of Paul Klee is very much a part of this work, the style and technique are more closely tied to the improvisational approach of jazz. Visual rhythms overlap and flow through and past each other like the sounds of the various musicians in a jazz combo.
The work was executed on 1/4" birch plywood, sealed with an acrylic polymer varnish on front, back and sides,and is framed and ready to hang.
