Piece description from the artist
Harmonic Vibration Thirteen has triangles, circles, and the squares that interplay with each other and keeps the composition lively. The white shapes along all the edges of the painting allows the light to move into the composition. One of my favorite parts is how the long gray rectangle weaves in and out among the shapes on the right hand side and holds all the shapes in place.
Harmonic Vibration Thirteen can either stand alone or act as a diptych – two paintings that act as one- along the side of Harmonic Vibration Twelve. I designed the two pieces at the same time and when I put them next to each other I loved how the triangles on each edge united the two paintings. The black, gray, and white checkered design behind the vivid circles and curves also unifies the two paintings.
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.
