A Still-Life and a Portrait
For the last months of summer and for the beginning months of autumn, I have been working on two different oil paintings which create a contrast between form and atmosphere. Using many passes of relatively thick paint, the objects acquire a rhythm to them. Considering the negative space brings both harmony and chaos to the composition. I have been working towards actualizing refined observation through tactile markings with the hope of building emotionally moving paintings.
