Painting: Acrylic on Wood.
"Green Incursion", 2014, acrylic on fiberboard. Brown, ochre and indian red acrylic are layered with gesso and sanded, then the "drawing" is executed in white latex enamel, a meandering cluster of lines. The resulting forms are then painted with acrylic.
The title refers to the group of shapes that form a green diagonal cutting across the cooler blues and grays of the dominant group. This work describes a dialectic: cool colors versus the warm tones of the background; the sinuous, organic curves versus the rigid diagonals; and the suggestion of shading and shallow depths among the forms versus the flatness of the colors.
Framed in a painted pinewood "box" style frame.
