Oil on Canvas
36" x 46"
For a period of time, I attempted to restrain my enthusiasm for multiple colors. I tried to minimize my palette to a maximum of four colors per painting. My work during that period was reminiscent of Paul Klee after the fall of the Bauhaus and equally as depressing. Following the sudden return of my optimism, I found myself aroused by the addition of red and yellow to my palette. As my brushes danced around the canvas, I found a peculiar sense of order in the chaos. The perimeters applied to the colors in this work represent a contained insanity.
