Ode to Albers 2

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 #2 also deals with movement by digitally rotating, framing, altering color, and reducing copies of the original painting.
