Code Series

The eight paintings below were completed four years ago. Originally I began with the orange piece. It included some colors I liked at the time. However, I had a lot of trouble deciding how to complete the piece. I soon began work on three others with similar colors schemes. For each one I kept an overall dominant color.

The triangles were just too harsh a shape for me. So, I added small dots over the triangles to soften the pieces. The purple and blue ones came first and then the red one. I finished the orange one last.

Since the four worked, I decided I needed to do four more. I had been asked to put work in a lobby of an office building and these pieces were the ones I intended to place there. Although I completed the other four during the summer of 2002, the use of the lobby space fell through.
