The Staggering Coast Line

Posted: December 11, 2009 in Page 3: Earlier Work

Dimensions: 180 by 111 cm.
Media: Paint on canvas with a sheet of wood.

Blue sea, white sand, green plains…out of order. A couple small sheets of wood were stripped off this painting, leaving traces. These traces had to be balanced, visually, by a piece of the remaining sheet of wood being torn off at the corner (in the form similar to that of the traces). This remaining sheet of wood draws the viewer’s eyes from the upper left down to the bottom right over a cascade of rectangular forms. In real life—in a perfectly natural setting—driftwood can be so out of place yet so in place at the same time.
