Regarding the question of why the comments were made so long after the posting, I can tell you that I look through the over 11,000 images posted by chronology as well as by theme, media, etc.  So often a tag on one piece will lead me to another.  Once I make comments, the piece is often moved into the featured artwork section of the site.  This can generate additional comments.

Hello Resident Curator. Thank you for the accurate critique of my work! I really appreciate your comments about visually provoking - threatening; space. And the differences between the richer more layered pieces contrasted with the BIGger work.

The Berkeley Power Series is 27" x 19" and as you probably saw, there are many variations on this theme.

Jerzy . . . I understand balance in my compositions, but often in a series like this, I chose to make a " wrong decision here & there. Maybe this was one of those?

Thank you both for commenting on this. If you don't mind me asking, what prompted two comments in one day when they've been on here for a couple years?

I'm looking for something in the right site of Your composition to make it static,but the topic is the thing which I thought about over 3 years;)Regards;)

Curator’s Comment:


The irony in these images is humorous at first glance, while actually quite visually provoking.  Utilizing a simple plug and outlet as metaphor for power is astute, and fits well with the simplified graphics and technique.  While I find the enormous scale of other prints impressive as well as ambitious, the works with the splayed hands and scrawled numerical count present more aesthetic manipulation and complexity.  I especially like the centralized green opening in this piece, as it abstracts the outlet into a planar space.  The contrasting color also relays a mood of conflict, while the semi-transparency of the overlapping imagery offers the viewer gestural drawing within a conceptual relationship.  I’m curious about the scale of these works.  They seem as though they could create a more intimate environment- pulling the viewer into a possibly threatening space.
