Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Oil on Wood.

I’ve been interested in exploring the level line in my work lately, both as a formal compositional device and as a psychological construct. Most of these paintings refer in some degree to the ultimate level we experience visually on earth: the sea’s horizon.

In simple design terms, level lines usually have a calming, soothing effect, which is apparent in many of these paintings. A line can also imply infinitude—one might imagine them continuing beyond the borders of the paintings with no beginning or end. That concept is slightly more unsettling…a look into the abyss.

Water seeks its own level, as the saying goes. Perhaps I’m seeking my own level as well—some kind of equilibrium in these tilted times.

This painting is framed in a 1/2" wide x 2.5" deep, natural wood frame, with a 1/4" dark recessed edge between artwork and frame.
