Cloud Over Water 7
Mixed Media on Paper Mounted on Panel
58 x 48 in
A landscape like Cloud Over Water boldly flattens space into simplified and lusciously colored gestural shapes while retaining certain natural qualities of the scene, such as the cloud’s rounded forms and the flashes of blue-green lights and shadow from the water’s depths. The result is a distillation of memory and perception into abstraction at once purposefully unstable and exquisitely balanced, the chaos of experience at equilibrium. Such paintings can only be made intuitively.
