Her Place on Earth, or, Flower in the Ground

Posted: May 2, 2011 in Page 1: The Interface Paintings

2011
Dimensions: 90 by 75 cm, framed.
Media: Paint on wood panel, with wood and cloth fabric.

The flower petals have been dug out of the wood frame (the “interface”) leaving the raw wood in view. The geometric forms around the flower have been dug out of the wood panel and match in color and texture the raw wood in the frame that was exposed. A ragged piece of green carpeting fabric adds a necessary touch of color at the bottom right.

The flower represents a person greatly impacting the life of the artist. Artist comment: “Whatever you—or I—may see in this piece, or in any of my work for that matter, this flower is the key.”
