"Tanks, Wires, Well" SOLD
oil on panel, 2010
6" x 8" (15.24cm x 20.32cm)
The main feature here is not so much the tanks themselves; it's the new, the now, it is industry at work, oil being siphoned from the ground, stored, then transferred to refineries. Without it we are stagnant.
So a livelier composition, one that does not allow the eyes to rest, but instead bounce around. Crowded with tanks and trees, wires slicing diagonally, a tonally busy sky, animated shapes.
The wires represent the path of crude oil, from the well, to holding and eventually into our lives. Links in a chain.79
