I appreciate the slightly quirky idiosyncratic, animated quality of these forms. The asymmetrical arrangement employs an unusual figure-ground dynamic, with a vague reference to more traditional table/tableau and still life. I was surprised to be reminded of your more embellished paintings when I looked at this piece in the context of your portfolio- Chloroplasts, while posted along with these recent paintings, shares the frenzied energy and allover pattern of the other pieces from three years ago. By comparison this new work seems rather minimal. But the dark violet and bright yellow-orange hues have a bold split-complementary relationship and offer pleasing narrative contrast to the otherwise non-objective images. I interpret a cautious tension in the white positive forms, as if they are voided out silhouettes of former full-hued objects. Organic in nature, there is still an underlying architecture to the organization of space. I’m also interested in the relationship between the warm reddish background color and the inserted shapes of the same color inside the white forms. Again injecting anthropomorphic attributes into the abstraction, the white shapes could be consuming their more vibrant exterior.
