I’m excited about the discoveries made in this, my newest, series – 'blobitecture'. Each canvas is a curation of prominent cultural icons, now radically reduced and de-contextualized. The shapes are altered as if by blurry rain or faulty memory.
'Vs.' or versus poses a dialectic between male and female, man made and human scale. The two shapes represent grand architectural landmarks (sky scraper and bridge), as iconic human anatomy (torso and lips), abstracted and reduced into symbols of strength and connection.
The colour scheme is a pale blue/sea green with dominant white brush work. Jarring colours – peach, orange, pink, navy, green – outline the morphic shapes.
Note: this painting, left unframed, intentionally reveals my artistic process. The random paint build-up and serendipitous drips that coat the sides of the deep edge canvas are meant to be seen.
