About the art
This is an acrylic painting on Arches 300lb, 100% cotton cold-pressed watercolor paper. This is the eleventh artwork of the Marimba series in which squares or rectangles of different colors are repeated in a grid pattern across a painterly single-colored surface. The Marimba paintings have been inspired by the colors of Guatemalan handwoven fabrics and marimba music. I'm interested in juxtapositions of color, and how colors either come together, or move away from each other. I'm also interested in figure/ground interplay and in surface and texture exploration. I use geometric shapes so that there are no distractions in the way I explore paint. I like to call this style "Chromatic Geometry".
