Big Paris

Piece description from the artist

The largest of five paintings that are similar, the title refers to a movie by that name about two American jazz musicians (Paul Newman & Sidney Poitier) living in Paris who have flings with two American tourists (Joanne Woodward & Diahann Carroll).

My painting involves an intuitive process that is free of specific subject matter. From 1985 to 2000 my focus shifted back and forth between allover fields and forms within fields. In 2000 I began the geometrical formatting of my fields. This was simply the result of liking the look of one painting when it came in close proximity to another painting. I started by adding one painting to another on the same canvas. This process evolved into varieties of combinations, both vertical and horizontal. I am currently at a point where large vertical sections are suggested by the spontaneously occurring layers in horizontal paintings.
