My recent work comprises two distinct explorations. “Moons” focuses on pure geometric forms: circles on a square canvas. The challenge is to achieve compositional balance, harmony, interest and depth by layering varying ink hues, transparencies and densities. Colors evoke a range of moods and emotions: calming, spiritual, joyful, brooding, mysterious.
My monochromatic abstractions evolve more spontaneously. Diverse techniques allow marks to swirl, explode, float or dance across the composition. These works have an apocalyptic, other-worldly feel. Cosmic and celestial imagery links to planetary themes evident in the circle studies.
