This new painting has roots in other designs I used in my quiltwork. For many years I did quilted and embroidered pieces that has the same linear layout as this painting. For example, this quilted and embroidered piece from many years ago has the same horizontal bands of color in fabric instead of paint.
In the following piece, done about the same time, the “blocks” of folded fabric are reminiscent, to me, of the effect in the painting resulting from leaving some “blocks” of underlying coolr uncovered by the final layer of paint.
In looking back to the work I’ve done over many years, I realize that my aesthetic has not changed much, it’s just moving along and being a bit transformed. And that’s okay, because each new variation on this theme keeps me interested and motivated…from the studio
