Iowa City Paintings 2021

Begun in 2017

  • Acrylic on paper (22.5″ x 30″) and Masonite (3′ x 4′)
  • Pasted elements, rubbed on paint, scrubbed, repeat.
  • Space-stacked, abstracted items still identifiable.
  • Yin & Yang simplicity.

But, after all, the aim of art is to create space – space that is not compromised by decoration or illustration, space within which the subjects of painting can live.”

Frank Stella, New York City, NY

“As the philosopher Immanuel Kant put it, the concept of space serves as the organizing principle by which we perceive and interpret the world, even in abstract ways”.

Jordana Cepelewicz, “Quanta Magazine January 14, 2019
