High Noon, Remembering Greenbacker Barn,Durham CT

For several years I have watched the Greenbacker Barn in Durham CT, where we have been residents for 40 years, slowly surrender to the call of the earth. This image recalls an earlier portrait of the barn when she stood strong ad proud bathed in the noon sun on a hot summer day.
Complementary colors further accent her strength and dominance.

Curator’s Comments:

Welcome to the site!  That you for sharing your beautiful work with us.  High Noon, Remembering Greenbacker Barn, Durham, CT has a bold presence of color and form, and solid painterly construction.  I enjoyed your empathetic depictions of dairy cows in related pieces, but this barn intrigued me the most because of the alternating bands of color.  The whitewashed right side suggests scumbled oil pigment over a tonal underpainting, while the sky offer a solid flat expanse of ultramarine.  Still yet, the ground is finessed quite differently, with surprising organic swirls of orange and green. The architectural structure is solidly established in the space despite this seemingly disparate approaches to surface and hue, but it’s as though the pastoral scene is understood through a Modernist lens. With longer viewing, one is left to contemplate the shifting grounds beneath the barn- the natural forces silently but relentlessly at work to unmoor its permanence.
