Piece description from the artist
Harmonic Vibration Eight began by exploring
how to create a rectangle within a square using different greens all the same mid-light value. I was interested in contrasting the circles within the square and having them move backward and forward depending on how dark or light they were. The large orange circle balances the smaller orange circle at the top and they both draw your eye diagonally through the painting.
I love the deep yellow ochre behind the square. It was funny, I loved that color so much that I wanted to add it to Harmonic Vibration 10. I sat and mixed and mixed all sorts of yellow ochres to find the EXACT ONE I used in Harmonic Vibration Eight. Finally I realized that I did have the exact same color but it just looked completely different on Harmonic Vibration Ten because there were different colors surrounding it. This is why I love color….it contains a mystery.
Debra Wuliger, a Durham, North Carolina based artist, paints abstract, hard edge interlocking geometric patterns on canvas. Debra has been honing her hard-edge painting skills for the last several years. Originally a figurative painter, patterns began to appear into her figurative work. Fascinated, Debra started exploring basic Quantum Physics concepts and found the idea of the Vector Equilibrium: the starting point for all happenings and nonhappenings.
Her paintings are depictions of the always present, always changing invisible patterns of sound and light vibrations, the building blocks of all creation, that originate from the Vector Equilibrium. Debra intuits these vibrations as she draws from her center, down her arm, to her hand and through the charcoal to the canvas. She interprets these vibrations into harmonious, rhythmic shapes as a charcoal line drawing. Here the shapes begin to vibrate in relationship to each other and this vibration intensifies as color is added.
This is a quiet, reflective process where Debra listens and observes the undivided whole in flowing movement. She paints love, joy and peace.
