Allapattah Scatter

Allapattah Scatter

Piece description from the artist

"Allapattah" is derived from the Seminole Indian word for alligator. I'm a witness. Allapattah Scatter is the gator attack you barely saw coming. It's the long predator eye-balling you from just beneath the water's surface as you stand blissfully unaware on the canal bank. Allapattah Scatter a reckoning worked worked out hand to hand. The painting is about surface tension and I worked it out on linen with palette knives, frayed-end sticks and my two hands. Its aggressive surface is a field of conflict where blacks and silvers contend with warmer colors for spatial dominance. We've reached a dynamic balance and the condition of counter-change. A courageous collector will know…the secret knowledge that we seek is in the pool of predators at our feet.

This painting ships directly from my studio, ready to hang, no frame required. The painting is signed on the reverse side.
