cell arabesque series

this is a project i’ve begun in the spring of 2010, the 1st few paintings’ color choices were inspired by colors of soda packaging that we c everywhere. this is a series based on squares, the idea of movement inside a square stage. this series will have variation in size from 6”x6” (approx size of my hand) to 6’x 6’ (tall ppl). after much thought and talk-over, the series is finally aptly named “cell” after the idea that cells r self-contained but also expands and grows. i have included in my peripheral show in pearl gallery & framing in portland, or. this is first group of painting where it’s zoomed into a single element from the typical full patterns. these r single-cell painting.
