Series 2 - Composition 2 is a non-objective painting in which I experiment with composition as my primary focus. At first glance it may seem to break rules with two forms separated at opposite ends of a horizontal canvas. However, I believe the piece works through multiple smaller compositions that are available for discovery within the whole, as well as through muted color, textural variation, and balance. Materials used include cheesecloth, modeling paste, wall paint, and acrylics on canvas. This piece is one of several that study composition through formal placement.
My process in this series moves through an evolution of form, texture, line, and color in which I perceive each element craving a compositional pose, either “comfortable” or “comfortably uncomfortable.” Changing emphasis on these elements allows me a path for future exploration as well as freedom from a formulaic personal style.
