"Oil Plant #4 (Sunlit Grass)" SOLD
oil on panel, 2010
6" x 6" (15.24cm x 15.24cm)
This painting was included in the Small Works Show at the Randy Higbee Gallery this weekend.
If it is true that you never feel more alive than when you have had a brush with death, then like death lingering nearby, the dark wooden structure serves to accentuate the burst of light and the live plume of red fountain grass.
Even the old used pipes and valves seem to have new life, seem to be invigorated.
This painting, half dark and half light, is Yin and Yang in it's most basic definition... shade and sun... earth, dark and cold... heaven, heat and light.83
