Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Enamel, Collage on Canvas.

"Forest Flower", 2018, acrylic and paper (painted in acrylic and then cut) on canvas, 11in wide x 14in tall.

Inspired by both the playful experiments in color and rhythm of Paul Klee and also the music of jazz saxophonist Charles Lloyd, this piece distills the feeling of Lloyd's live performance at the 1966 Monterey Jazz Festival into patterns of visual movement.

Sheets of newspaper are covered in painterly, impressionistic brushwork, then cut apart into individual "strokes" which can be layered onto the canvas. The overall effect emphasizes rhythm over form, but forms do still suggest themselves.

This piece is executed on a "gallery wrap" back-stapled canvas, requiring no frame, and has hanging hardware in place. The painting is signed and dated on the front, and signed, titled and dated on the back.
