Circulating / Turtle began in 2014 as a heavily scored impasto of rectangles in a multicolored geometric configuration, satisfying, but never seeming to be completely resolved. As sometimes happens simply putting a painting away for a while and readdressing it can resolve problems. Organizing the color and ferreting out shapes of continuity has brought this painting around to a dramatic push and pull of elusive imagery ranging from forms of organic marine life to urban structures like houses. One of the benefits of painting over the previous multicolored configuration is a resulting inventiveness and color peek-a-boo that adds texture and depth.
Medium Used: Oil on Canvas
