    Art Description:

    Colorful, large scale, square format and ready to hang. One of a series of paintings based on Picasso's "Nightfishing in Antibes". (See "Nightfishing in Antioch" here in my Artonique portfolio) My series deconstructs aspects of Picasso's 1939 masterpiece; the pattern language, distortion, cartooning, ostensibly naive and purposefully awkward figuration. I'm fascinated with the goal of keeping a painting active long after my gestural dance with it is over. This particular canvas positively vibrates with this mission.

    Medium Used: Oil and latex on Canvas

    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.
