Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Paper on Wood.

"Signal to Noise", 2018, acrylic and painted paper on wood, 16 x 16 inches (40 x 40 cm)

Lyrical currents of cool blues move across the panel, fading in and out of a chaotic neutral monochrome background, suggesting the way we hear music over the noise of everyday life.

The technique here, of collage and decollage, in which collage elements are glued down and then sanded or scraped away, layer by layer, owes a great deal to the example of Mark Bradford and Jack Whitten. There is also a strong influence of Paul Klee, who often used ideas from music -- rhythm, repetition, harmony -- as a basis for visual communication.

This painting is signed and dated on the front, also titled, signed and dated on back, framed and ready to hang.
