A fascinating amalgam of shapes and textures forms a strange yet harmonious whole in this abstract painting. There are sinewy curves, like watery hands, or ocean waves; cylinders and cones, a pie-slice triangle, bright, shiny light passages and mysterious shadowy depths. The painting explores texture as well; surfaces range from brushy to smooth and polished. The artist called this a still life, yet if it contains traditional still life objects like fruit or a table, they’re hard to discern. Do you see the profile of a pitcher in this painting?
