The Pulse, Courtesy of The Altered Page

August 20, 2008

I’m excited and honored to be a part of The Pulse: Artist Registry, a huge project undertaken by Seth Apter at The Altered Page, in which he has interviewed 95 artists and will feature their answers to a series of questions in future posts in his blog. This link takes you to the beginning, and includes a comprehensive list of links to all the participating artists. Seth has amazing energy and imagination, and I always love reading his blog.

Here is my latest painting, one of many in the Echoes Series that have been in progress for the past two weeks, but the only one I could call “finished.”

The Echoes Series consists of texture, lots of layering, and more texture, and with a twist: I’ve started playing with interference colors. This will be something I’ll have to be very judicious and careful with. They are way too addictive! Like garlic, a little goes a long way.

    Beautiful! I love the textures and colors, particularly on the right (though the left side is great also!).

    Great use of interference colors – I can see they could be tempting as they produce such a unique color palette, but might be distracting if overused. But this works wonderfully.

    I particularly like the way in which you’ve split the piece – it provides a formal geometric template in which the more random textures and colors reside. A really nice design complement.

    Thank you for the comments, Bob. It’s interesting to me that a divided composition is somehow more comfortable than a wide open expanse of canvas. It definitely keeps things under control.

    Thanks for the link to The Pulse and for your generous words about me and my blog. I am so happy you are a participant in they survey. Also, I love this piece. There is something really compelling about serving up a diptych within the confines of a single frame.
