    Art Description:

    This is a response to a painting I saw in Paris this summer at the Centre de Pompidou. My painting bears little resemble to Eugene de Kermadec's, "Femme se chaussant" 1933 it is was simply a point of departure and homage to the early modernist work fanned the flame for my love of art. Fans of George Braque will note similar decorative components I have lavished over. To accent the period to which I'm speaking I've framed the piece in a subtly ornate moulding. The alternative photos show the piece in my framers window here in Brooklyn and as conjectured images which I montaged in photoshop.

    A body of work should not be a cadaver evidencing life that was but rather the flash-point for life which ignites anew on each renewed encounter.
