The six panels which comprise Work Group 1 were installed at inde/jacobs gallery in Marfa in October 2008.
The subjects of my paintings are color and perception. The six panels of Work Group1 (2008) continue my investigation into subtle differences of light and color (color being a quality of light) through the use of multiples.
The work is divided into three diptychs. Each diptych’s final color is the same, only the underpainting differs. The final colors were applied thinly and loosely using transparent or semi-transparent colors. This causes the top color to mix with the color underneath in the viewer’s perception, subtly altering the perceived hue. The color perceived does not actually exist on the surface of the painting.
Another result of working loosely is that the sufrace color appears flat at a distance, yet closer is actually many colors which distance blurs.
