THE RHYTHM OF COLOR

"Modern paintings are like women, you'll never enjoy them if you try to understand them." -- Freddie Mercury

The rhythm of these pieces emerged from the movement of my palette knife in creating patterns. It was also influenced by the intuitive choice of color. While certain colors begged for a gentle application, other sought to sweep over the entire surface. The movement of the viewer’s eye creates a multiplicity of rhythms when viewing.
