Sunday November 18, 2012 Geoform.net


Geoform is an online scholarly resource and curatorial project whose focus is the use of geometric form and structure in contemporary abstract art being made by artists from around the world.
Geoform explores, documents and celebrates the rich diversity of style and aesthetic intent that characterizes this broad vein of contemporary non-objective abstraction. Such diversity attests to the profound resonance that geometric form and structure have had for people across time and place.
Geoform is edited by Julie Karabenick (karabenick-art.net). It has been online since May, 2005.

I want to thank Julie for including my work on the Groform site.  I hope you will go and see, it is a beautiful site!

Fragments III #130  30"x30"  gouache on w/c paper

Fragments III #131  30"x30"  gouache on w/c paper

In Fragments III #130 I am working with a graduation of green and of red to orange.  I am reminded of many mountains, like the Sandia de Christo of New Mexico, washed in the color of the sunset, as only in New Mexico, land of enchantment.  And in Fragments III #131, the composition is interesting to me.  There are color changes and value changes through out the work.  There appears to be changes in the patterns, from small to large, because of these changes.  It is funny when we work, we may have one thing in mind, and something else happens, just like life.

I am again working at the editing of the series of my work.  I think the whole will be stronger because of the editing.  But the question of what to keep and what to let go?  Sometimes it is difficult, I see a work and I remember, what was overcome to complete the work, it may not be the strongest, and yet it is "dear."  I try to be merciless in my decisions, though it breaks my heart to let "my children go, to know they will not go on, will not live."  It seems each piece was "a trial by fire."
