SquareScapes

 

I love the challenge of painting in a square; I love the design aspect, the symmetry, and the need to challenge that symmetry. 

 

This collection begins the exploration of denying the need (or perhaps habit) to express an image within a rectangular format. 

 

Rather than length being the focus, or height, it is the center that draws our attention, against all the rules of design. The challenge then is how to achieve an asymmetrical balance within a shape that, by definition, is an expression of symmetry.
