New Work

This last week or two I've been very busy working on two large (ish) pieces.

Ruins 1 is the first in a new series.  Each of the three sections grades from large scale/dark to small scale/light.  Each section crumbles into a fine rubble.

Ruins 1, 60" x 85"
Tuning Fork #11 is my version of exploding motifs (literally).  The red tuning forks are being shot into the gray background.

Tuning Fork #11, 53" x 79"
