“Opus III”, 24×24″ mixed media on canvas was selected by Mark Bischel, the juror of the Art League’s December 2020 Open Exhibit. As part of my Music series, in this and the two other paintings, Opus I & II, I’ve taken a colorist approach using a geometrical composition with an ornamental motif to create a musical feeling.
“Bosons”, 20×50″ acrylic on canvas was selected and awarded with Honorable Mention by Raymond Padron, the juror of the Art League’s October 2020 Open Exhibit. My particular interest in scientific theories such as spacetime and Higgs fields has been the source of inspiration for this painting. It is the overlapping strings (white and light green) that are holding the fabric of the composition, like the bosons of the universe. In this piece, I have used raw cotton canvas staining techniques (prior to painting) to achieve richer colors.
“Fuchsine Fusion”, 48×36″ acrylic on canvas was selected by Allison Nance, the juror of the Art League’s May 2020 Open Exhibit. The fluidity of shapes and colors mimicking the laws of nature. Fuchsine or fuchsin (pronounced like fusion) is a chemical that is green when dry and
turns into the most beautiful magenta when dissolved in water. Hence inspiring the title “Fuchsine Fusion.”
