Artist Statement

This is an acrylic painting on Arches 300 lb watercolor paper, the twelth artwork in a series inspired by the Brazilian artist Lygia Clark (1920-1988), specifically Superficie Modulada, a geometric drawing from 1956 done with graphite and gouache on paper. I'm interested in juxtapositions of color, and how colors either come together, or move away from each other. Triangles are just a starting point. I'm also interested in figure/ground interplay and in surface and texture exploration. I love to paint on Arches 300 lb watercolor paper - it is mould made, 100% cotton, incredibly sturdy and there is nothing else like it in the world. As an amazing fact, the Arches paper company was established in France in 1492! Notice the beautiful deckled edge that this paper has.
