I am exploring
& discretionary release
representation of a shape
which involves a center
& some sort of surround.
This initial composition:
Fermata 1 ~ Center & Surround
is dominated by the central descending handle clasping the spherical orb which radiates downward and to the bottom two corners of the square.
The overall shape is organic in nature, though the structured handle lends a formality which significantly contrasts the formative & emerging orb.
Drama is also created by the boldness of colors & the high contrast noted between the orange and blues. The orb hints at an imminent dropping or bursting, so faith in security of the handle is soothing.
This piece is striking because of it’s high contrast and bold strong shape. The setting is left to the imagination, which leaves the viewer feeling a bit mysterious.
One wonders, “Am I in a new galaxy or this a microscopic land?”
Viewers have seen this shape as a
• a mermaid’s tail
• a ligand and receptor
• a dog picker upper thingy for balls
There is great potential surrounding the orb and a thought that something should happen next.
I’d be curious to hear your thoughts on this piece! Please drop a note in the comments if you care to share.
