Painting: Watercolor, ink on Paper.
As with all my Twig and Ink Series pieces, I used a twig dipped in ink to create the figures and squares of the piece.
This piece, however, is a slight departure from many other pieces in the Twig and Ink Series. I was inspired by a trip to the Hammer Museum where I saw an exhibit of Joseph Holtzman. Holtzman's abstract work was sectioned off into areas -- a sort of "paintings within a painting" approach.
In this piece, confining the figures to their own square creates a sort of tension between unity and isolation that I find interesting. Are these figures interacting, or are the walls between them impenetrable? Again, as with all my work, the "real" story is left up to the viewer.
