Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Wood.

"Sleeping in the General's House", 2015, acrylic and cut-paper collage on wood, 28 inches tall by 24 inches wide (70 x 60 cm).

Landscape, architecture and technology collide in a turbulent, smoky space. The title implies the presence of a narrator – perhaps the viewer? – in a place where he or she may not belong. Is the sleeper a trespasser? A prisoner? A welcome guest? Things are happening all around, edgy and anxious, impossible to ignore, but their full significance is hidden from the visitor.

Over a background of soft, hot colors layered with gray, flat geometric forms and energetic "painterly" elements are bound together by a scaffolding of pure white frames. Chaos and order, held together by a fragile linear system.

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.
