Dark Grid image



Dark Grid explores the dynamic of the diagonal played against "in front of" and "behind". Because of the dark key of the painting it changes a great deal with the intensity, direction and angle of the light.

The painting will look very different, depending upon where you stand in relationship to it and the source of light. Some of the light will reflect from the surface defining it, some will penetrate and be reflected back through the many thin layers of paint defining the interior. Add to this the constant variation in your visual perception and you experience a "painted space" that is never exactly the same.

In some light the painting appears to contain an irregular geometric grid screening off an interior world of light and ambiguous forms. This play of penetrated plane against space is universal and pervasive.
