Vivid Red seems to be the theme for HOT SUMMERS. I have been working on 14 x 17’s pretty much exclusively all summer. I had a need to work out a series which means for those of you who aren’t familiar with artist’s terms …. create about 20 like minded and inspired pieces. The idea of a series is to stick to the same theme, using repetitive patterns so when you look at them all together, framed and ready to rock and roll … they all look similar. All the work should be as if they belong as oppose to NOT belonging.
Anyone familiar with the jury process at an art show will know that the art work has to look cohesive. Cohesive.
My work is considered abstract and expressionist which means it is not a picture of an apple or a cat or a landscape … it’s an abstraction of ??? It’s an abstraction of an expression. What does a SCREAM feel like? What does the smell of rain look like, and so on. That’s expressionism.
