What are the dimensions? I find the aspect ratio compelling because of how you have blocked over the horizontal slash to eschew landscape. The ratio reminds me of Pollock's "Untitled (Composition with Ritual Scene)" . I also like the "emergencies" - and by that I mean the things that emerge, like the glint of blue in the dark center pylon, or the woodgrain-esque smear and lensflair-esque starband in the rightmost seventh. I love the play with backlighting and layering; your depth work in the dark panel reminds me of Larry Roots' translucent work with shoe polish and lexan , while the patchy olive in the left block ascends to a top, flat surface. There are so many surfaces and implications of texture. I'm not sure I jive with the triangles in the red, though they successfully trounce the dominant perpendicularity. I like how the black sash is singed and animated by the yellow / red. I wish I could see it in person. http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/6684/jacksonpollockunledcomp.jpg http://www.larryroots.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/scale-640-640//sites/default/files/artwork/full_res/1644.jpg.crop_display.jpg http://www.larryroots.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/scale-640-640//sites/default/files/artwork/full_res/1613-causationno.80_0.jpg.crop_display.jpg http://www.larryroots.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/scale-640-640//sites/default/files/artwork/full_res/1830.jpg.crop_display.jpghttp://www.larryroots.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/scale-640-640//sites/default/files/artwork/full_res/1624-palermo.jpg.crop_display.jpg http://bloximages.chicago2.vip.townnews.com/journalstar.com/content/tncms/assets/editorial/d/39/1a3/d391a302-f753-5e7d-9cfb-fae3105feb06.image.jpg
Hi Myer- enjoyed your comments. the painting is 20" x60" and it is a ratio I like working with.Took a look at Larry Roots work which is masterful but seems more lyrical than mine. The surfaces really are important and digital images don't really convey that.
