Rhythm, pattern, movement, color and space are all components of my work in painting. This week, I have focused exclusively on rhythm and color.
Focusing on theses two variables allows me to define how I want to use them.
Playing with them in different sizes, techniques and gestures helps me see which are closest to my vision.
Since I want to take my work further, in a bigger size and bolder manner, I did some tests on loose canvas.
I used one or two colors, big brushes, with spontaneous and broad gestures: the results are surprisingly fresh and lively, each with their own own pattern.
There is a valuable lesson in simplicity here. But I want to add contrast and bit more complexity.
Where do I go from here? The next step will be in that direction, bringing more colors and rhythms together.
Where will it lead? I have an idea, but being open to what comes is part of the adventure.
