Geometric Abstract

The use of geometric shapes in art can probably be traced back to ancient cultures even though its adoption as a modern art form is more recent. Two-dimensional shapes defined by color, texture and location on the canvas can provide an interesting way to describe our world.

Urban Panes is a composite of the myriad colors and shapes of windows that can be found in a city environment.   The appearance of these windows can change in infinite ways through different times of day, by season and in changing weather conditions. For this piece I worked against a black background and layered paint mixed with small amounts of texturing gel.
