The Quadrant Series. Eight paintings into what will become a large series of acrylic and mixed media on square canvases. (61cm x 61 cm). Using the square and some of the ideas of quadrants, I am composing or plotting out geometric abstractions. Because of the historical connection the square has to record albums and CDs I have found that I am veering to a more graphic approach. My palate is brighter, bolder, and more insistent than ever before in my work. I am, or have been fairly math phobic so the series is proving cathartic in that I am able to use my long dormant interest in geometry to work through a series that requires discipline and deliberate planning instead of expressive and intuitive approaches.
