Next week I'll have a
EXHIBIT at the Drama League
(Dece mber 8, 2009 - January 11, 2010)
This triptych will be one of my newest pieces.
(3 simple checkerboards of squares within a larger rectangular frame)
As an artist it's a challenge playing
with the viewer's eyes.
I explored rhythms and variations of density with small squares, creating a feeling of rhythmic movement not normally found among squares.
To make use of maximum contrasts in these almost monochrome collages
I incorporated silver leaf, car paint chips, Chinese newspaper.
importance of squares in
other basic geometric shapes, changed
arrival of Modern Art about 100 years
This change caused painters, sculptors and printmakers to become excited about the creative possibilities of all kinds of geometric shapes.
From almost the beginning of Modern Art, some artists became very involved with ideas using shapes that were entirely geometric, and were especially creative with square shapes.
As time went on, some artists came to delight in visual effects that teased people's eyes by presenting geometric shapes in ways that were more like visual puzzles.
