Grid paintings





Some thoughts:
-strong presence
-doing something . . . but what
-rational but odd and vibrating
-gravity / weight
-illusory depth and flatness
-human and thought = ?
-division of space
-plane
-movement

Jewel Blue Beret

Velvet
Against grey
Auburn
Coffee cup

Abstraction on the edge of figuration
Lines that are lines
But take you somewhere else
Denying that leap
Keeping you on the surface

White on Naples yellow
(building hues)
Copper / green lines / grids / windows

Deep marine
Aqua teals
Memories of the sea
Seawall in Nanaimo
Whale watching
Boat ride with J
I fear the sea
Fathoms of the unseen
Unknowable
Threatening
Now threatened
