This painting I just love for several reasons.The colors are seductively inviting and warm. The quality of the substrate (canvas) itself is wonderfully evident; with the dark tones around the entire piece continuing around all four sides is not only so that it can be hung without framing, it actually frames and centers the entire painting with the dark color.With a vital simplicity reminiscent of Rothko's late works, it is the thick application and layers of paint that add texture, depth, and a unique duality: a dark and light mood exist simultaneously. "Complexity in the Abstract."
