" PRECIPICE "


Original Painting: Acrylic on Hardboard Panel

" PRECIPICE "..... is the third piece completed in the " AGGRESSIVE TENDENCIES " Series. This group of intimate works has developed from my studio practice of making small scale studies for larger works. They are turning out to be so successful, that I'm pleased to offer them as complete works unto themselves. 
Stimulating an apprehensive stillness within the composition, a dominant diagonal line and radiant colors, define the abstract shapes, which are illuminated by three differing surface treatments, High Gloss, Semi Gloss, and Velvet Satin, heightening the illusional depth across the picture plane. Gazing upon the image, after just a few moments, a sense of anticipation is realized, as if the red figure will soon move.

I believe this new work communicates it's contemporary artistic esthetics quite well, irregardless of any intended or perceived "meaning". Simplicity can be quite beautiful!
