“Pulling Perspective”—acrylic and spray paint on canvas 48×36” won The Best in Show Award of The Art League (Alexandria, VA) selected and recognized as the best in show by Matthew T. McLaughlin the juror of the December 2019 show. > READ INTERVIEW >
This was my third Best in Show Award by The Art League within four years. This painting is a two dimensional sculpture using a perspective grid that is distorted, folded while preserving the 3D look. The minimalistic approach to use of colors (black and white only) is to keep the focus on the forms. Unlike many paintings that depict a realistic perspective, this painting is created within the realm of two dimensions by molding a square based grid into organic forms on the flat surface of the canvas.
