Thanks very much for the detailed comments, Kristen. It's valuable to hear how viewers see and feel about my paintings. I will be posting more, of various styles that I'm experimenting with.
COD 2 is a dazzling picture, rejoicing in the saturation and plasticity possible within the acrylic medium. I’m fond of the decorative dot pattern moving vertically between the other saturated color patterns, which read as organic pixilation of a larger scene. While there is universality to the primal designs, for me they almost call to mind Australian aboriginal dot paintings, or the ceremonial Huicho yarn works of Northern Mexico. Formally, the intermittent larger shapes break up the picture plane nicely, and project somewhat of a hierarchy into the understanding of the space. At first glance the painting is a saturated maze of high chroma color. But looking closer I appreciate the restraint of the red circular shapes, which only move through the left side of the piece. The yellow is also restricted somewhat, leaving a densely articulated blue-green field in the larger middle section. Keeping the red and yellow along the edges of the painting pulls the opposing sides together and stops the painting from visually expanding in all directions. Pollination contains many of these technical attributes, but by restricting the viewer’s understanding of the subject it codifies the force and passion of the natural botanical process rather than the pulse of the creative (painting) process itself. I fine both to be fascinating works, and hope to see more of them.
