I’ve been feeling rather earthy in my choice of colors these days, and copper is one of my favorites. Instead of pairing it with an umber or cream I decided on one of my other favorite combos, neutral gray and black. This combo reminds me of an obsidian mineral deposit. I like working on multiples, diptychs and triptych. Galaxies is a diptych, and I love seeing how one half relates to the other, and how each work is similar yet unique.
There is a certain amount of chaos, but somehow it feels like a light and passive chaos, as opposed to dark and aggressive.
Below is a detail of the finished diptych. If you look closely you can see the lovely little textural dimensions.
If you’re interested in this work and would like more information or to see more images, please contact me.
