Coral Pink

Coral Pink, 54" by 84", oil on canvas,

-architecture fenestration
-Frank Stella's "straight" lines (someone almost said what you see is what you see . . .)
-formalism and the hand
-painful to look at
-jitters, oscillates, afterimage
-static dynamism
-scale is important
-could add some texture to lead the viewer in?
-difficult to talk about
-light and colour
-seeing what it looks like
-light changes the read dramatically
-colour seems solid in bright light
-weird institutional feel
