Artist Statement

Just like Josef Albers developed his Homage to the Square painting variations, this is the second painting in a series in which I explore color juxtapositions and variations based on the limited structure of nested rhombuses, similar to the “God’s eye” designs of colorful yarn weavings created by the Huichol indigenous people of Mexico. The series is called “Rhombus Rumba” as a way to associate shapes and colors with the structural nature of music and dance. The name of the project is based on the play of two words: rhombus, which represents the nested geometric shapes of the God’s eyes, and rumba, which represents a Cuban African dance. Painted on Arches 300 lb cold-pressed watercolor paper.
