Speaking of Color

March 9, 2021


Here’s the first iteration of what has become a motif for me recently. It began as an experimentation in mark making. Inspired by Damien Hirst’s recent cherry tree paintings, I decided to try a similar approach to paint application but with a decidedly different approach to color composition. This, and each of the paintings in this series, relies on a complementary color relationship to create a dynamic and tensional statement.

Orange against blue, yellow-orange against blue-violet, yellow-green against red-violet, and in this case green against red. Profound? Not really. But it doesn’t take a lot to keep engaged with color! It is my obsession.


Let's keep in touch,
