Composition in red, blue and gold

Composition in Red, Blue and Gold
(detail, acrylic and ink on paper, 2008)
for Sunday Scribblings #107 – Compose and
Reduce Reuse Recycle at Inspire Me Thursday.

This painting, done specifically to create something titled Composition in Red, Blue and Gold, is the outcome of two done simultaneously on two different acrylic paper blocks using the same colors. I ended up disliking one of them so intensely that I tore it up, but then took some of the pieces and glued them onto the other one. Unfortunately, these two layers are hardly discernible in the scan. Gold and black ink I added after the rip-up and paste-on process.

I certainly get the impression that there are three dimensions to this. The varied sizes and shapes make a pleasing whole.

For me, the final impression of fragmented colours creates pockets. Like pockets of existence?

Most interesting!

Interesting response to the Sunday Scribblings prompt. I like the visual impact of the strong colors and shapes, though the title seems whimsical to me, not helping the reader/writer in me to find meaning. The previous post (red painting on scrap paper) is wild. Maybe these works are also different masks. Interesting work.

I like this Leonard! It's amazing what you can create when you're not trying, right? You had ripped this up? :D
