Painting: Acrylic on Wood.
"Philodendron", 2015, acrylic and cut-paper collage on plywood, 24 inches tall by 28 inches wide (60 x 70 cm).
A large tropical plant decorates a cool, bright interior as the summer sun blazes outside the window.
This piece evokes the French sensibilities of Matisse, Braque or Dufy with the cheerful, simple organic forms, but overlays those forms on a complex, multilayered surface of cool colors and ambigious, barely-glimpsed shapes and gestures, suggesting the shifting patterns of fabric, light and shadow, and movement elsewhere in the space.
The painting is on lightweight 1/4” plywood, lightly varnished for UV protection, framed in a wood “floater” frame, ready to hang; it is signed and dated both front and back, with title on back.
