About the Work
Rich and exuberant large scale, vertical, abstract painting. Washes of mauve and violet compose the background, the acrylic has been applied to the raw canvas in thin overlapping layers, creating an effect not unlike that of watercolor. The matte quality of the paint on the canvas is in sharp contrast to the glossy notes that were applied to the surface: single, large strokes of pale yellow, burnt sienna, and turquoise.
