A shifting shape lacks definition once space and itself appear to meet. Nothing happens while the whole world appears to shift

thank you for your most insightful comment...much appreciated
I like the separate painterly surfaces simultaneously present in these works. This monoprint with acrylic has distinct characteristics of pigment setting into versus onto the paper’s surface, giving the viewer a sense of psychologically repellent versus porous and receptive grounds. The organic figuration within the image suggests a solid entity, but not quite as specific as the vessel referenced in Wonky Wine Jug. The print’s subdued grey slate palette conjures a rocky or distressed surface, but it is also animated by line and small bursts of color. Shape Shifting goes further with gorgeous layered and scumbled color. The deep blues and yellow ochre provide a rich foundation of weathered and scoured color, alluding to geographical or environmental upset. The chalky white line crossing over the contrasting surface is both elegant and erratic. Despite the form’s ambiguity, it also presents a strong figure-ground relationship when compared with the more allover disbursement of pattern in some of the pieces posted earlier.
