2013, Oil on canvas, 56"w x 36"h

This piece considers the monumental abstract compositions made by Barnett Newman in the mid-20th century. It deals primarily with surface color and areas of abstraction. Like Newman, who created a deliberate center in some compositions that he called the zip, the composition of my painting is compressed in a central area in which brushstrokes are visibly layered and two other large areas meet. The surface is physically textured, providing an interesting tension with the flat planes of color.
