I appreciate your paintings considerably more when viewed in sequence; they appear to build upon and then deconstruct one another through colorful, tectonic shifts. Of perfection and doubt (carpenters square) is particularly rich is its layered bands of graphic assertion and cancelation. The title suggests a testing of architectural structure and plan. While the arrangement isn’t cross hatched, there’s a distinct interplay and intelligent counter-move in chosen directionality, opacity and hue saturation. The sequences of like colored bars and geometric shapes are elegant, but unexpected in design. The relationship between the saturated color and softer black and white areas is also quite pleasurable- setting up a rift between otherwise cadenced sequences. I also like the neutral putty color in this piece- it gives the angular elements something else to work against. Draco of the Forbidden City (a reference to an ancient city or constellation?) may be more esoteric in title, but is similarly built between hard edged geometry and gesture. The top portion reveals an interesting spinning out from more defined edges to successively painterly surfaces. It’s as if a conceptual point is spun out of order and understanding. This piece also conveys a visual instability of sorts. The perceived weight of the top section is rather precariously balanced on another triangle that’s teetering between inexact and equivocal components.
