Thanks for the response, Dennis. I can see traces of Miro now that you mention it- the dominance of the red and black. But I think of his work as generally organic.  If I had to take a stab at influences I'd offer a merger of Russian Constructivist Kazimir Malevich and Alexander Calder.

(I am enjoying the spring time, but we had sleet in Pennsylvania on Saturday. It's at these times I start thinking of moving back down South!)

Thank you, Kristen. Others have been telling me that it looks like something Miro would have made??? However, that was not in my thoughts.

Thank you again. Enjoy the spring time!

All the best..

Curator’s Comments:

 

Thank you for alerting me to this new work.  Every time I feel confident recognizing your signature style, you surprise me with new formal variations.  Convergence recalls your cantilevered geometric sculptures, and also employs a primary color palette.  But the arrangement suggests more of a grouping of related elements than a stacking of units along a vertical trajectory. I recall some tinted hues in the last piece you shared on the site, Cherries, and see this sculpture similarly sets up the pure red and blue hues opposite their lighter tonalities.  This aesthetic echo, or reverberation of color simultaneously provides harmony and contrast in the piece.  There is also a divergent association between the flat circular shapes and the smaller spherical ends of the various metal rods.  I enjoy the almost discordant interplay between the separate pieces in this sculpture, and the appearance that the central white rod intersecting the black circle is levitating above the marble base.  I assume the scale is a maquette size, but could certainly see this piece in a very large installation.  Thank you for continuing to share your work; there is a cool and austere poetry in the economy of forms.
