I’m intrigued by the economic simplicity of these shapes on a heavy and deeply saturated ground. The white linear element resonates in the dead center- pulling the blue cleaved shape together that it overlaps. There’s a handsome smooth quality to the piece, as the hard edges are softened by the distinctly painterly ground. I’m wondering if the page layout of your works indicates a progression of sorts. The progressively austere compositions aren’t numerically designated accordingly, but nevertheless build into compound, layered images. ( For example- Image 15, 11, 13& 3.) Some of these pieces also have a dissonant balance, and anomalous use of color- reminding me of early Philip Guston. Image 13 is especially perplexing, but enjoyable. The graphic polka dots and whirl shape add a touch of humor to the organic abstraction, and also clash because of their extreme value contrast. The radiating texture along the perimeter of the piece pulls my eye from the strong elements in the center. The circular shape, overlapping its twisted end reminds me of the archetypal snake devouring its own tail. Whether or not this specific primordial reference is intentionally, the piece conjures cyclicality, and never ending re-creation.
