Ode to Albers 1

DATE 2013 2013
MEDIUM  Mixed Media (Oil Pastel, W/C, Digital)
SIZE 18″ X 18″


This series explores optical/perceptual effects produced by applying watercolor washes over an oil pastel under drawing. The juxtaposition of certain colors in proximity produces the retinal effect of depth, as well as changing one’s perception of the colors themselves–as Joseph Albers demonstrated. Ode #1 also produces spatial illusion by digitally reducing scale and altering value (dark/light) of the original painting.
