Curator's Comment:


This hand painted silk piece appeared in a random selection on the site today, and I was enticed by the color saturation within the landscape-oriented abstraction.  I find the layering of organic elements within the space to be somewhat unusual, as I’m accustomed to expecting an open expanse at the top of the picture place, to denote sky. The decorative floral design in the top, blue portion is a surprising and pleasing suspension of visual weight. The design appears to loosen and unfold as it travels vertically to the bottom of the piece, ending with a fuchsia pink layer in the strata.  Looking back through your other pieces on the site, I reencountered others with the same title designation Autumn Red Tree, and saw that I commented on a related piece more than a decade ago.  Then and now I was surprised to learn these works involve batik.  The linear compartmentalization arguably evolves out of process, but is handled in a highly personalized manner in your works.  The loose handling of forms is also seen in the more pictorial works with flowers and urns, but the landscapes enjoy a particularly rich abstraction, and saturated color. I would love to see more of your imagery on the site, and hope you will share more if you remain active.
